Synthetic Biology for Metabolic Engineering

Rodrigo Ledesma-Amaro's Lab

What we do.

The RLAlab is interested in how the development of synthetic biology can revolutionise biotechnologies and help us to move towards a sustainable bio-based economy. We engineer microorganisms for a wide range of applications which span from the production of the chemicals and fuels we usually get from petroleum to their use in biomedicine and therapeutics.
