They would research closely with you to offer help in Metabolic Pathway Synthesis.
As an emerging area of research, Synthetic biology can extensively be defined as the design and construction of novel artificial biological pathways, organisms or devices, or the redesign of existing natural biological systems. Metabolic engineering deals with the engineering (design, construction, and optimization) for the microbial synthesis of native as well as non-natural routes of product1. A prime example of using metabolic engineering to produce an active pharmaceutical ingredient is the semi-synthesis of the antimalarial drug artemisinin with S. cerevisiae engineered to produce artemisinic acid, the most complex part of the molecule2.

Microbial production of natural products has been enabled by transferring entire metabolic pathways or specific enzymes from rare or genetically intractable organisms to those that can be readily engineered2. Microbial production of unnatural products has been achieved by combining enzymes or pathways from different hosts into a single microorganism and by engineering enzymes to have new function2. Metabolic engineering will be the future of biotechnology and soon rival and potentially eclipse synthetic organic chemistry2.
