Award List:

High-Throughput Screens and Selections for Microbially Produced Diacids

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Jeffrey L. Fortman, Dr. – 612-590-9639
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Production of renewably sourced industrial chemicals using microbial production processes requires extensive strain engineering to improve strain titers (g/L), productivities (g/L/hr), and yields (g-product/g-feedstock). Microbial strains are typically optimized by screening for incremental… More

Microbial production of dicarboxylic acids

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Jeffrey Dietrich, Dr. – 281-772-4475
Award Amount: $988,214.00
Dicarboxylic acids are important industrial chemicals currently produced from petroleum using ecologically damaging manufacturing methods; furthermore, dicarboxylic acid prices are rising with increasing petroleum feedstock prices. Lygos is developing microbial hosts for the cost-competitive… More
