Project: Microbial synthesis of unusual monosaccharides.
- project duration
- 01-OCT-93 – 31-DEC-99
- In this project, a study of the microbial synthesis of unusual monosaccharides using fermentation processes will be performed. Microorganisms contain unusual monosaccharides in their cell wall and caspsular structures. Their level can be increased bymanipulating nutritional, physiological and genetical parameters. Chemical or enzymatic hydrolysis then yields the desired monosaccharides.
