Gene shuffling and evolution (A non-GM approach)
To develop superior yeast biocatalysts, our scientists took a different long-term path than most of our competitors. We have developed proprietary technologies that accelerate evolution and the gene shuffling required to produce superior yeast phenotypes. Our unique, non-GM approach to long-term genetic development has enabled us to create yeast strains with superior genetics compared to other commercially available strains. Improvements include temperature and ethanol tolerance, organic acid resistance, faster fermentation, lower glycerol production, growth on non-sugars, nitrogen efficiency, protein levels, and enzyme expression amongst many others.
