Advancement of its own technologies towards the production and the screening of metagenome libraries

The enzyme specialist c-LEcta successfully finished the advancement of its own technologies towards the production and the screening of metagenome libraries. Besides large microbial libraries now the so called metagenome is available to the company. Up to 99% of naturally occurring microorganisms cannot be cultured and therefore are not accessible with conventional techniques. This enormous biodiversity now is effectively addressable by using the patent-protected screening technology of c-LEcta. With this technology c-LEcta produces metagenome libraries from very interesting habitats with high relevance and strong potentials for industrial applications. These libraries are now available for custom-specific developments.
