BACKGROUND Glycerol is the major by-product accounting for up to 5% of the carbon in Saccharomyces cerevisiae ethanolic fermentation. Decreasing glycerol formation may redirect part of the carbon toward ethanol production. However, abolishment of glycerol formation strongly affects yeast's robustness towards different types of stress occurring in an(More)
BACKGROUND Finely regulating the carbon flux through the glycerol pathway by regulating the expression of the rate controlling enzyme, glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GPDH), has been a promising approach to redirect carbon from glycerol to ethanol and thereby increasing the ethanol yield in ethanol production. Here, strains engineered in the promoter of(More)
Yarrowia lipolytica, a non-conventional yeast with a promising biotechnological potential, is able to undergo metabolic and morphological changes in response to environmental conditions. The effect of pH perturbations of different types (pulses, Heaviside) on the dynamic behavior of Y. lipolytica W29 strain was characterized under two modes of culture:(More)
Dynamic optimization of fermentation processes could demand the use of multiple criteria to attain certain objectives, which in most cases are conflicting to each other. The use of Pareto optimal sets supplies the necessary information to take decisions about the trade-offs between objectives. In this work, a multi-objective optimization algorithm based on(More)
A metabolic flux analysis (MFA) model was developed to optimize the xylose conversion into ethanol using Candida shehatae strain. This metabolic model was compartmented and constructed with xylose as carbon substrate integrating the enzymatic duality of the first step of xylose degradation via an algebraic coefficient. The model included the pentose(More)
The oleaginous yeast Yarrowia lipolytica has been extensively studied due to its capacity to accumulate great amounts of lipids triggered by the excess of the carbon source and the limitation of nitrogen. However, under these conditions this yeast can also produce citric acid, which decreases lipid conversion yield. Few dynamical models are only available(More)
