ENGS 161: Metabolic Engineering


Alternate years: 15W: arrange


ENGS 160, a non-introductory course in biochemistry or molecular biology, or permission



A consideration of practical and theoretical aspects of modifying metabolic pathways to produce products of interest. After reviewing basic principles of metabolism and the scope of the metabolic engineering field, case studies of metabolic engineering will be examined, including detailed consideration at a genetic level. Thereafter, techniques and applications of metabolic modeling will be considered, including structured modeling and metabolic control theory.
