报告摘要:

  Biofilms have beendemonstrated as promising biocatalysts for applications in environmental andindustrial biotechnologies. One of the most important factors influencingoverall performance of biofilm-mediated biocatalysis is biofilm thickness. Itis highly desirable to maintain the biofilm thickness within an optimal rangewhich allows for efficient mass transfer and biocatalysis. Optogenetic toolsare ideal for controlling biofilm thickness, as light is non-invasive, easilycontrollable and cost-efficient. I will present our work to engineer lightresponsive biofilms whose development can be modulated by light through lightresponsive c-di-GMP gene circuits in which the bacterial cells sense light toadjust its biofilm formation by regulating the c-di-GMP level. The engineeredbiofilms with a controllable thickness show promise in efficient and robustbiofilm-mediated bioprocesses. I will also briefly discuss the potentialapplication of light-responsive biofilms in bioelectricity generation, chemicalsynthesis and biofouling mitigation.
