In the past years the advent of microbiome research was facilitated by a tremendous decrease in DNA sequencing costs. The progression of sequencing technology and the growing demand for large datasets (beyond the size of the human genome) enabled this favorable progress, which even surpassed Moore’s Law. There are various technologies that benefited from these developments and many of them have a set position in modern laboratories.
Welcome to the first of two articles about “Connection Carbon“.
Carbon-carbon bonds are the basis for all vital organic molecules, which makes them attractive building blocks for e.g. pharmaceuticals, fragrances, flavors and many others. The key to an efficient and green production thereof are specific enzymes.
