Lector: Ing. DI (FH) Dr. Harald Kühnel, MSc, Dr. Christian Leitner, Katharina Seiberl, BSc MSc

2SWS
3ECTS

Lecture contents

Construction of an expression vector to produce l-lactic acid in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
1.) Isolation of the l-lactat-dehydrogenase gen form Lactobacillus plantarum
2.) Construction and amplification of the expression vector in E. coli
3.) Transferring the expression vector in the target organism S. cerevisiae and measurement of the LDH activity

Assessment methods

Writing a scientific lab protocol
Recommended language: German or English
Rated will be the protocol and the practical work in the lab.

Teaching methods

After a theoretical introduction at the beginning of each lab day the students will conduct the experiments by themselves with help from the protocols.

3.5SWS
5ECTS

Lecture contents

The course consists of two parts:
1. Brewing technology
2. Characterization of a recombinant yeast strain
In the course of the brewing technology, beer, liquor and vinegar are produced. This includes the process design, QA, filling and labeling.
In the second part, a yeast strain producing lactic acid (outcome of the molecular biological lab) will be characterized in terms of productivity in comparison to the wild type and a mutant strain (PDC neg.)
