Check these highly interesting publications from
Enrique Asin García on "Genetic Safeguards and Safety-by-design" https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0167779920301104
and Christos Batianis on CRISPRi for P. putida https://sfamjournals.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/1751-7915.13533?af=R.
Proud to highlight a new publication in the wake of EPP:
Kim, J., Goñi-Moreno, A., Calles, B., and de Lorenzo, V. (2019). Spatial organization of the gene expression hardware in Pseudomonas putida. Environ Microbiol (In Press)
Find the full article here: https://doi.org/10.1111/1462-2920.14544
SOPs developed by EPP partners are available on our website. Find them here, with more to come in the next few weeks.
The SOPs cover a wide range of methods including genome engineering, modification of bacterial growth conditions and molecular biology techniques. Specialised methods have been developed such as the use of oxygen gradients to adapt wild-type and the KT2440 strain of P. putida to lower oxygen levels, and performing a batch cultivation of P. putida KT2440 in a lab-scale bio-reactor.
Congratulations to our partner Dr. Ian Fotheringham of Ingenza Ltd on receiving the Charles Tennant Memorial Award!
We are happy to announce EPP's 8th General Assembly meeting and joint workshop on 'Resposible research and innovation' to be held at BASF and in Mannheim, Germany, on April 8-10.
Two of our members of EPP from the ITQB - Cecilia M. Arraiano and Vânia Pobre - have just published this technique in Methods in Enzymology, which can be used also for Pseudomonas putida: https://authors.elsevier.com/b/1Y8Bf_1lc7dESG

Immerse yourself in the world of film, art, design and synthetic biology. Get inspired by artists’ and designers’ perspectives on recent developments in the (re)design of biological systems. Watch wonderful and funny BIO·FICTION art videos, movies and documentaries, listen to talks about Bioart, Science Fiction novels and Do-It-Together Biology.
EmPowerPutida is glad contributing to this exciting festival. Join us from October 5 - 6 at Wageningen University. SynCity Days Wageningen UR
Ruben van Heck, PhD at Wageningen University and modeller in EPP, defended his thesis on "metabolic modeling to understand and redesign microbial systems". Great work! http://www.wur.nl/en/activity/Metabolic-modeling-to-understand-and-redesign-microbial-systems-2.htm
EPP is happy to announce that we contributed to the exciting GRC 2017 on Synthetic Biology with posters, presentations, discussion sessions, etc. https://www.grc.org/programs.aspx?id=15843
The European Commission has published an article on EPP and its role in bacterial engineering. Take a read.
