Nutrient assimilation is the first step that allows biological systems to proliferate and produce value-added products. Yet, implementation of heterologous catabolic pathways has so far relied on constitutive gene expression without consideration for global regulatory systems that may enhance nutrient assimilation and cell growth. In contrast, natural systems prefer nutrient-responsive gene regula... read more
