Integration of the analytical framework and experimental tools of metabolic engineering with emerging technologies such as DNA microarrays and directed evolution stands to dramatically improve the approaches by which strain improvement and biocatalyst design are pursued in the future. Progress in genomics and applied molecular biology, together with increasing emphasis on renewable resource utilization for chemical production, has advanced metabolic engineering to the forefront of biotechnological interest. © 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd.
