: Recent developments in the field of biocatalysis using permeabilized cells are reviewed here, with a special emphasis on the newly emerging area of multistep biocatalysis using permeabilized cells. New methods of metabolic engineering using in silico network design and new methods of genetic engineering provide the opportunity to design more complex biocatalysts for the synthesis of complex biomolecules. Methods for the permeabilization of cells are thoroughly reviewed. We provide an extended review of useful available databases and bioinformatics tools, particularly for setting up genome-scale reconstructed networks. Examples described include phosphorylated carbohydrates, sugar nucleotides, and polyketides.
