Biosynthesis of Chemically Diversified Non-Natural Terpene Products

Executive SummaryDrug and chemical discovery is a lengthy, difficult, and inefficient process. The production of new drugs and chemicals is bottlenecked at synthesis or biosynthesis of complicated molecules, especially chiral molecules. Furthermore, diversification of current drug and chemical libraries is hindered by these difficult and inefficient...

Method for Improved Production of Terpenoids Using Co-Engineered Lipid Droplets and Anchoring of Terpene Biosynthetic Enzymes on Their Surface

Executive SummaryThis technology addresses one of the main hurdles of plant production and extraction of terpenoids by capturing desired terpenes in lipid droplets in plant cells. The lipid droplets are readily extracted using standard processes used in the vegetable oil and biodiesel industries, and the high-value terpenes can be easily separated...

Method for Production of Novel Diterpene Scaffolds

Executive SummaryMany insecticides currently in use are problematic due to persistence in the environment and off target effects including accumulation in apex predator species. Therefore effective crop-protecting agents that are naturally sourced and that overcome some of these side effects are under increasing demand. This technology identifies biosynthetic...
