Phenotypeca commence a second R&D project for their synthetic biology platform using baker’s yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae).

October 2019

We are continuing our research to develop a genetically diverse library of S. cerevisiae yeast strains and stable plasmids for industrial protein production. In this case, we are focussing on strains that we have selectively bred for the production of biopharmaceutical proteins used for vaccines, therapeutics and diagnostic assays. This will involve combining cutting-edge advanced yeast breeding techniques developed in the academic sector by Professor Ed Louis (at the Universities of Nottingham and Leicester), with state-of-the art yeast industrial molecular biology for the production of our customers’ products.
