Anastasia Krivoruchko is a project leader in the Systems and Synthetic Biology Group. Her research is focused on using metabolic engineering to create yeast cell factories for production of compounds of interest. This includes yeast cells able to produce 1-butanol, a potentially important biofuel. Another project involves the creation of platform yeast cell factories containing enriched levels of cytosolic acetyl-CoA, a precursor molecule for various biotech products.
