Reassignment of the TGA stop codon to facilitate genetic engineering in the Chlamydomonas reinhardtii chloroplast
The abstract of Dr Rosie Young
Microalgae have potential as low-cost hosts for the synthesis of recombinant products such as therapeutic proteins and bioactive metabolites, with the chloroplast representing a particularly attractive platform for genetic engineering. In Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, none of the 69 protein-coding genes in the chloroplast genome uses the stop codon UGA, therefore this spare codon can be exploited as a useful synthetic biology tool. We reassigned this codon to tryptophan and showed that this can be used as an effective strategy for addressing a key problem in chloroplast engineering: namely, the assembly of expression cassettes in Escherichia coli when the gene product is toxic to the bacterium. ....

A4F sponsor AE2015
The organisers are pleased to mention that A4F signed up as overall conference sponsor. Next week we will inform you further.
Aqualia is sponsor of the lanyards. Aqualia is the company in the FCC Group managing all the activities regarding the integral cycle of water. FCC is the leading public services group in Spain, present in 5 continents and employing close to 100,000 people in 52 countries throughout the world. In 2008, the group turnover reached 14 million Euros, of which almost half outside Spain. Aqualia had a turnover of 845 million Euros in FY 2008, which represents more than a 7 percent increase and a doubling of the international business with respect to 2007. Aqualia employs around 6000 people and its activity comprises 3 major areas among which it creates synergies in knowledge, research and methodology:
- Management of public water services
- Design and construction of hydraulic infrastructures and treatment plants.
- Global solutions for the use of water in industry.
