Harnessing lactic acid bacteria in synthetic microbial consortia

Jian Ming Liu, Christian Solem, Ting Lu, Peter Ruhdal Jensen

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review


Lactic acid bacteria (LAB) are important members in synthetic microbial consortia due to their ‘generally recognized as safe’ status and diverse metabolic activities. Defined communities with LAB show great potential in elucidating metabolic interactions that drive their assembly and demonstrating power to address sustainability challenges in food, environment, and health.
