laboratory concentrates on the study and engineering on non-model microbes from
KSA marine and terrestrial habitats. It is part of the experimental component
of the CBRC CCF Microbial Cell Factories programme. The laboratory provides a
complete experimental pipeline from isolation and physiological
characterization of novel photosynthetic and heterotrophic microbes through
genome sequencing and metabolomic profiling to molecular and synthetic
biological engineering of selected strains for biotechnological application(s).
In addition, the laboratory hosts major industrial collaborative programs.
