Compare the performance of different genes of interest for the production of biofuels and bio-based molecules for green chemistry, cosmetics, pharmaceutical and nutraceutical industries.
The HelioBiotec platform has got the LightCycler 480 (Roche Diagnostics) which allows us to execute real time genes quantification. It is the fusion of two technologies:
The goal is to compare the evolution of different genes of interest. This comparison is standardized by reference genes (stable in any condition). The analyses can be carried out in plates of 96 or 384 wells.This device also allows us to make genotyping thanks to the HRM (High Resolution Melting) unit. This technique allow, for example, to separate 2 variant populations for only one base (nucleic acid) in a given gene. It combines the same technologies as describe above but with a better resolution.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
