Title: METHODS AND MICROORGANISMS FOR THE PRODUCTION OF GLYCOLIC ACID AND/OR GLYOXYLIC ACID
Abstract:
The present invention relates to methods and recombinant microorganisms useful for the production of glycolic acid and/or glyoxylic acid. The methods of the invention involve either only one step of fermentation of the modified microorganisms of the invention or one step of fermentation of the modified microorganisms of the invention and one step of either biological or chemical conversion of the glycolic acid or of the glyoxylic acid, the microorganism of the invention over expressing a phosphoketolase gene.
