Terpenoids,a family of compounds with a wide range of diversity and structural complexity,play important roles in the fields of pharmaceutics and energy. The terpenoid compounds are mainly extracted from plants or chemically synthesized,which are both cost-effectiveness. On contrary,the economic and efficient way of microbial synthesis is more promising. However,due to the complexity of theterpenoidsynthesis pathway and the difficult manipulation of the host metabolic networks, most terpenoid compounds have notbiologically synthesized inan agreeable yield. Here,the strategies for improving the yield of microbial terpenoids production.
