GENEART Presents The Industrial Production Of Genes, Gene Libraries and Genomes At The Biotechnica
"Regensburg, October 02, 2007 - GENEART AG, as the global leader in the gene synthesis market and specialist in the synthetic biology sector, presents the industrial production of synthetic genes, gene libraries and entire genomes at the Biotechnica in Hannover (Germany). From October 09 to 11, experts from the pharmaceutical industry, biotechnology companies, scientists from academic fields, investors and journalists will engage in a global information exchange at the key event in the European biotechnology. More than 900 companies from around 30 countries will inform more than 12,000 visitors about new developments in the entire biotechnology field. The organizers have particularly recognized the increased significance of both industrial and plant biotechnology. GENEART therefore welcomes the Biotechnica as an ideal forum to showcase its state of the art production technology of synthetic genes (the building plans for living organisms) to customers from all parts of the globe. As demonstrated in the genome project HUGO ("Human Genome Organization"), modern gene sequencing and gene analysis methods produce an enormous amount of data on gene sequences. This flood of information by far exceeds the capabilities of conventional genetic engineering to provide these genes for conventional lab work, e.g. for the development of therapeutics. During the last ten years, a gap has emerged between the available gene sequence information on the one hand and the lower number of isolated genes on the other hand. GENEART bridges this gap with its industrial production process of synthetic genes. The company is able to provide any gene fast and efficient once the respective gene sequence information is available."
