The application of external stress on bacteria is a promising approach to evoke cellular responses in bioprocesses to improve production capacities. A prime example is the production of rhamnolipids, eco-friendly biosurfactants that can be used for diverse products. In this study, gene expression profiles of genes associated with the regulation of rhamnolipid synthesis as well as genes for the synthesis itself are presented to identify important points of regulation during such bio processes.
