enzymes and metabolites you need
Beneficial microbes produce thousands of different products, not only do we intend to use their biomass for their primary function, we also explore the value of our waste streams.
As we produce microbial biomass, we also generate a lot of by products. We can quantify, separate and identify useful products. For instance, fungi can produce antibiotics and bacteria can produce metabolites as succinic acid. Alternatively, bacteria and fungi can be engineered to produce and secrete specific proteins of interest.
