Welcome  to the laboratory for

 Metabolic Engineering




 Engineering metabolism for energy, chemical, and pharmaceutical production

 Dr. Ramon Gonzalez

The laboratory for Metabolic Engineering and Biomanufacturing focusses on engineering microbial systems that have the potential to revolutionize energy, chemical & pharmaceutical production, environmental remediation, and agricultural systems.


Current projects include the bioconversion of C1 feedstocks, synthesis of polyketides and isoprenoids, nitrogen fixation and ammonia production, and bio-upcycling of plastic waste.
