Title
(EN) Methionine producing recombinant microorganisms
Abstract
(EN)

This invention relates to methionine producing recombinant microorganisms. Specifically, this invention relates to recombinant strains of Corynebacterium that produce increased levels of methionine compared to their wild-type counterparts and further to methods of generating such microorganisms.
