Abstract: Squalene is a polyunsaturated triterpenic hydrocarbon with nutritional, cosmetic, pharmaceutical and medical applications. given the increasing commercial demand for squalene alongside growing international concern for the fate of food crops and marine habitats, sustainable sources of squalene are required. This study investigated a microbial biorefinery approach to co-production of squalene and ethanol using an engineered strain of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
