Glasgow Polyomics celebrates industry collaboration

The Glasgow Polyomics team are working with industrial biotechnology company Ingenza, with funding from Innovate UK, on the development of the first use of metabolomics to facilitate strain engineering. Glasgow Polyomics logo

Professor Mike Barrett, Director of Glasgow Polyomics and Professor Karl Burgess, Senior Research Fellow, with their team have created a wealth of data, the Polyomics Metabolomics Pipeline, to analyse the information and help make intelligent decisions.

Dr Burgess commented: “The system is a vast improvement on traditional methods of analysing samples and gives a more detailed account of the patterns of change in the fermentation process. We have worked very closely with Ingenza to develop the system and one of my PhD students is working on the software for the project within Ingenza’s fermentation department.”
