Toward green flotation : interaction of a sophorolipid biosurfactant with a copper sulfide Universiteit Gent
Bioconversion of food waste to produce industrial-scale sophorolipid syrup and crystals : dynamic Life Cycle Assessment (dLCA) of emerging biotechnologies Universiteit Gent
An interdisciplinary -omics study to boost continuous bolaform sophorolipid production Universiteit Gent
Sophorolipids : the natural functions unravelled Universiteit Gent
The yeast Starmerella bombicola distinguishes itself from other non-conventional yeasts by its potential of producing copious amounts of the secondary metabolites sophorolipids. Secondary metabolites are typically produced by microorganisms in the stationary phase and are not required for growth. They perform a plethora of specific natural functions such as inhibiting growth of competing organisms by the many antibiotics produced by e.g. ...

Bringing microbial biosurfactants to the market: the AppliSurf project Universiteit Gent
The ICBS conference is organized within the framework of the closing meeting of the exciting AppliSurf project, screening the APPLIcation potential of a portfolio of novel types of glycolipid microbial biobased SURFactants of which the exciting results will be explained to you by the AppliSurf Project Manager(s).
Unravelling and resolving inefficient glucolipid biosurfactants production through quantitative multiomics analyses of Starmerella bombicola strains Universiteit Gent
Glucolipids (GLs) are glycolipid biosurfactants with promising properties. These GLs are composed of glucose attached to a hydroxy fatty acid through a omega and/or omega-1 glycosidic linkage. Up until today these interesting molecules could only be produced using an engineered Starmerella bombicola strain ( increment ugtB1::URA3 G9) producing GLs instead of sophorolipids, albeit with a very low average productivity (0.01 g center dot L-1 center ...
