Abstract:
Consortia outperform single microorganisms at multiple tasks. However, consortium design is challenging and successful application examples are rare. A major challenge is the selection of consortium members such that performance is optimized. In a recent publication, metabolic modeling has been successfully applied to aid consortium design.
