Cyanobacteria have potential to produce drop-in bio-fuels such as ethanol via photoautotrophic metabolism. Although model cyanobacterial strains have been engineered to produce such products, systematic metabolic engineering studies to identify optimal strains for the same have not been performed. In this work, we identify optimal ethanol producing mutants… (More)
We predict housekeeping genes from replicate microarray gene expression data of human lymphoblastoid cells and liver tissue with outliers removed using a scoring scheme, by an algorithm based on statistical hypothesis testing, assuming that such genes are constitutively expressed. A few predicted genes were examined and found to be housekeeping.
