Methanol is an attractive alternative carbon source for industrial biotechnology. Methylobacterium species represent suitable microorganisms to convert methanol into valuable multi-carbon chemicals, as their complex central metabolism provides many different useful starting intermediates for establishing efficient production pathways. Here we describe recent results to produce dicarboxylic acids and terpenoids in M. extorquens.
