Ievgeniia Tiukova

Researcher at Systems and Synthetic Biology

Ievgeniia has worked on different aspects of microbial biotechnology since 2009 with focus on the production of fuels, food and feed using yeasts. Her previous research has involved several species of yeasts including Komagataella pastoris (syn. Pichia pastoris), the biocontrol yeast Wickerhamomyces anomalus, the ethanol-producing yeasts Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Dekkera bruxellensis as well as the oleaginous basidiomycete yeasts Rhodotorula glutinis and Rhodotorula toruloides.
Much of herresearch during the last couple of years involved using omics tools to identify the genetic basis of biotechnology relevant traits in non-conventional yeasts. Her current research focuses on the development of yeast-mediated bioconversion processes as part of a transition towards sustainable biotechnologies to ensure global welfare.
Yeasts are versatile biocatalysts that can find many applications in a future biobased economy to supply the global population with goods in an environmentally sustainable way.
