Biodiversity | White Genome Project

Yet another groundbreaking initiative for Biosidus is the White Genome Project, which aims at the isolation, identification and characterization of Antarctic bacterial strains for further sequencing of the complete genome.

In collaboration with the Argentine Dirección Nacional del Antártico, we have conducted research aimed at the isolation and characterization of certain microorganisms from the Antarctic territory that are particularly adapted to extreme temperature. We have isolated and identified a novel species, Bizionia argentinesis and have sequenced its full genome.

Current investigation is focused on the identification and characterization of genes coding for “cold active enzymes” for industrial processes, particularly in the field of food processing.
