At Evolutor, coupling our in-house microbiological toolkit with our Accelerated Evolution Platform approach means that we can tap into the hidden genetic potential of microbial strains to rapidly optimise selected traits.
Here, a strain was optimised to significantly improve its thermotolerance at 46ºC. The evolved improvements were then reverse engineered to identify the genetic changes responsible. These changes were non-intuitive and could not have been achieved using a rational synthetic biology approach.
