Microorganisms can only be applied as a food ingredient or production strain when they are sufficiently stable and able to function optimally under the desired conditions. Probiotic bacteria, for example, should be able to withstand the gastric acid and bile salts that are present in the stomach and intestines. Fermentation production strains should function optimally under the desired process conditions.
To investigate and optimize these characteristics, it is necessary to find out which genes are expressed in a given physiological background. Such information can be obtained via transcriptome analysis. BaseClear BiaNomics offers a combination of both the sequencing of the transcriptome (mRNA) as well as a complete bioinformatics solution to determine the gene expression. This also allows for the discovery of novel exons and alternative splicing.
