Project description

This project investigates the biotechnological production of new-to-nature en tailor-made glycolipid biosurfactantia. This project aims to expand the range of useful biological biosurfactants beyond the natural variety, to modify them in order to improve their use and application range, satisfying the need for structural diversity in the market.
