The inexhaustible nature and biodegradability of bioplastics like polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) make them suitable assets to replace synthetic plastics. The eventual fate of these eco-friendly and non-toxic bioplastics relies upon the endeavors towards satisfying cost and, in addition, execution necessity. In...

Rhodobacter sphaeroides is a metabolically versatile bacterium capable of producing terpenes natively. Surprisingly, terpene biosynthesis in this species has always been investigated in complex media, with unknown compounds possibly acting as carbon and nitrogen sources. Here, a defined medium was...
