Microbial Technology Group Laboratory

KAUST CEMSE CBRC Microbial Technology (Archer) Laboratory
 
The 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.
