Rafts4Biotech is a pioneering project that builds upon the discovery of bacterial lipid rafts and exploits them as a biotechnological tool for spatial confinement of reactions of industrial interest. Introducing the concept of bacterial lipid rafts in biotechnology will foster the industrial application of bacteria and allow the production of a broad range of novel compounds. This project will explore different bacterial strains in order to compare and define a standardized microbial chassis to fit industry needs.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under GA No. 720776.
