That’s the project
The production of recombinant biopharmaceutical proteins is of paramount importance for both public health and a sustainable bio-based economy. Improving production platform, in this case the yeast Pichia pastoris (syn. Komagataella phaffii), is an important tool to make bioprocesses sustainable in the long term and at the same time economically competitive.
The aim of this project is to reduce the timelines in strain development for difficult-to-express but therapeutically promising protein formats. For this purpose, technologies that allow for rapid and efficient cell and genome engineering will be further advanced.
