Malatproduktion aus Rohglycerin mit Ustilago


The use of biodiesel derived crude glycerol for the production of value
added chemicals has been discussed frequently. Current glycerol-based
microbial production process often suffers from low rates, titers, and
yields, hindering their industrial application. Here we report on the identification
and optimization of Ustilago trichophora as promising novel production
organism for malic acid from glycerol. All optimization steps presented
avoid metabolic engineering resulting in a non-GMO organism.
