Random mutagenesis / Genetic engineering

We are specialist in genetic engineering of microorganisms. Molecular breeding of fungi and bacteria has been the core activity of INBIOTEC for more than 20 years. Typical techniques include transformation, gene knock-out, gene knock-down, gene overexpression, etc. Also random mutagenesis of bacteria and fungi is performed using both physical (UV) and chemical (e.g. nitrosoguanidine) mutagens.

A tailor-made accurate selection of modified microorganisms is based on specific requirements, such as antibiotic resistance to markers, auxotrophy or other phenotypic traits.
