Yeasts are mini fermentation factories with a strong track record in industrial, food and pharmaceutical biotechnology. The Horizon 2020 Industrial Biotechnology project CHASSY delivers a new suite of yeast strains for the production of high value products for the cosmetic, nutraceutical and white biotechnology sectors. The focus is on yeast platforms for the production of lipids and aromatics, two classes of molecule with incredibly diverse applications. We addressed problems of limited precursor supply and lack of versatility by combining in silico computational approaches with strain engineering in an integrated systems and synthetic biology strategy. The result is a series of sustainable production platforms that have the potential for high yields and titres, and a series of technologies that offer a suite of benefits to industry including a reduction in development time for cell factories.
