Research

We study the regulation of lipid metabolism in Yarrowia lipolytica, a model oleaginous yeast. Oleaginous yeasts store their energy in the form of lipids, in a manner that is similar to mammalian cells. However, the process of lipid accumulation in oleaginous microorganisms is poorly understood.
