  • The potential of poly(hydroxyalkanoates) (PHAs) to replace conventional plastic materials justifies the increasing attention they have drawn both at lab-scale and in industrial biotechnology. The improvement of large-scale productivity and biochemical/genetic properties of producing strains requires mathematical modeling and process/strain optimization procedures. Current models dealing with structurally diversified PHAs, both structured and unstructured, can be divided into formal kinetic, low… CONTINUE READING
