Non-dogmatic approach to engineering

New ideas are always considered

Adapts approach to the needs of the project

Not one-solution-fits-all

State-of-the-art synthetic biology approaches
We have state-of-the-art synthetic biology approaches, as a result of our combinatorial assembly methods. Considering it being difficult to predict biology, we believe in building libraries rather than single constructs with diversity at each step, giving us a better chance of success.

Selection technology
We use genome editing techniques that can easily be multiplexed. Often biology is so complex that more than a single mutation is required. Whenever possible we use selections to lead us to the optimal solution - this is what our selection technology is characterized by and this allows us to interrogate much larger libraries than screening alone. Depending on the application we utilize different types of selection from designed auxotrophy to biosensor-based selections.

Learning across molecules:

Cells naturally produce vitamins in only small amounts and therefore their biosynthesis can require complicated mechanisms involving multiple cofactors. We have built up expertise in engineering such complicated enzymatic reactions, especially those dependent on iron-sulfur clusters and S-adenosyl-methioninecofactor. This scientific background gives us an edge in the production of many B-vitamins and nutraceuticals.

Our team’s comprehensive experience allows us to approach complicated metabolic engineering projects from multiple angles. With backgrounds ranging from protein biochemistry, protein engineering, synthetic biology, metabolic engineering to chemistry and bioinformatics - we can address the challenge of expressing small molecules in E. coli from several sides at once.
