Customer SpotlightExploring the Many Hidden Potentials in Plants
Dr. Li-Fen Huang is an Assistant Professor at Yuan Ze University Graduate School of Biotechnology and Bioengineering in Taiwan, ROC. Her research over the past three years has two goals. First, she is using plant molecular biology methods to engineer glycosylation pathways for protein expression systems within rice suspension cells. Plant-based expression is less expensive than mammalian-based systems, and also has lower biosafety risks. However, mechanisms that work in plant cells are not compatible with these in mammalian cells, so her lab must find a way to integrate these mechanisms in suspended rice cells. The second research goal is to manipulate plant photosynthesis for bioenergy production such as biofuels, biohydrogen and bio-electricity. In photosynthesis, ferredoxin (Fd), an iron-containing protein in chloroplasts, is a final electron acceptor, and when overexpressed, it may increase photosynthetic efficiency and lead to more electrons released from Fd in microbial fuel cells.
