Ultra-efficient ancestral enzymes

At Evolgene we used our deep knowhow and expertise in Ancestral Sequence Reconstruction (ASR) technology to design and select enzymes with unprecedentedly enhanced properties. Our strategy is simpler and faster than other protein engineering technologies. Furthermore, the ancestral enzymes are produced at high level using our heterologous expression platforms.

Disruptive enzymes for a wide range of biotechnological and industrial applications.

Products

We have developed a novel and unique process to produce cellulose nanocrystals. This extraordinary biomaterial is obtained from different cellulose sources using ancestral enzymes. The process runs under mild conditions and no hazard chemicals are used.

Harnessing the power of nature
