Celbius and John Innes Centre awarded proof of concept grant

Celbius and the John Innes Centre have been awarded a grant for £54,342 by the NPRONET NIBB to investigate the effects of ultrasonication on secondary metabolism in a project that will run until June 2016. Secondary metabolites are of enormous commercial importance, and are formed by bacterial and fungal fermentation. Many antibiotics are produced in this manner. The project, led by Dr Andy Truman at the John Innes Centre, will investigate whether secondary metabolite pathways may be up regulated or otherwise modified for beneficial effect through the application of low power ultrasound during the fermentation.
