Sophie Vaud

I am a 2nd year PhD student and the main objective of my project is to develop flexible, efficient and easy-to-use genome engineering tools for Cupriavidus necator, one of our bacterial chassis able to grow on carbon dioxide. These molecular tools will then be used to engineer, fine-tune and implement metabolic pathways within the bacterium, for example to improve the production of high-valued chemicals from carbon dioxide fermentation. Further on, high-throughput editing of the genome of C. necator will be automated with robotic equipment and adapted for a broad-host use. This work is carried out jointly with Vanisha Patel, who started her PhD at the same time and who is focusing on the computational approach of the project.
