CRISPR Yeast: Replacing the Need for Plant-Derived Metabolites

Plant-derived compounds are widely used across the pharmaceutical, cosmetics, food and agricultural industries. However, compared to other natural compounds, they often produce a lower yield of secondary metabolites.

Yeast serves as a powerful model system for diverse secondary metabolite biosynthetic pathways. When combined with CRISPR/Cas9, these complex pathways can be reconstructed quickly and efficiently.
