Learning Deinococcus bacterium

The blog is usually not familiar with the type of microorganisms that industrial biotechnology companies use for their fermentation processes but I was intrigued about this Deinococcus bacterium that is being developed and promoted by France-based start-up biotech company Deinove.

The company claimed to be the only one in the world to design and develop a new generation of industrial processes based on this bacterium, which is said to have exceptional properties such as high resistance to numerous kind of stresses; ability to integrate large fragments of DNA from bacteria, fungi and even plants in a highly stable manner; having the ability  to manufacture rare compounds such as carotenoids, antibiotics, enzymes, antifungals from biomass; and the ability to co-digest several sugars.
