an Sofian Yunus and Patrik Jones published results on ‘Photosynthesis-dependent biosynthesis of medium chain-length fatty acids and alcohols’ in Metabolic Engineering. Highlights are a synthetic 1-octanol biosynthesis pathway introduced to Synechocystis 6803; Optimal choice of promoters and RBS enhanced alcohol production by 25-fold; Precursor feeding indicated that octanoate availability limited pathway flux.
