Genomics software streamlines detergent production

Share this on social media:

Researchers hoping to alter the genetic code of bacteria to produce more effective enzymes used in detergents are using genomics software to handle the large volumes of genetics data.

The new research could improve both the efficacy, and environment impact, of the detergents. However, the process involves the collection, analysis and storage of large volumes of transcriptomics, metabolomics and proteomics data. This data is used to explain how the bacterium’s metabolism could be improved to increase yield.

To solve this problem, the researchers at Henkel, based in Düsseldorf, Germany, are making use of Genedata’s Phylosopher software, as a data management platform. It provides a streamlined way for reasearchers to arrange and access the data, even from across disciplines.
