About PacMen

“A shift towards bio-based production of chemicals and fuels is essential, if we want to reduce our dependency on oil for chemical synthesis or our dependency on rare plants for extraction of scarce pharmaceutical drugs. In this quest, the main challenge is to develop novel cell factories quicker, and hence cheaper, than today."
