Synthetic Biology– Tuesday, January 16, 2018- 10:30 AM–
“A Versatile Semi-Synthetic Tool-Fungal Artificial Chromosome (FAC)”

The 2017 BIO Investor Forum selected Intact Genomics as one Nominee in the Buzz of BIO Contest.

Intact Genomics was selected as one Nominee of the Diagnostics & Beyond category in the Buzz of BIO Contest, recognizing the most innovative companies at the 2017 BIO Investor Forum. For more information, please go to: http://bit.ly/IamTheBuzz.

BIO (Biotechnology Innovation Organization) is the world’s largest biotechnology trade association representing biotechnology companies, academic institutions, state biotechnology centers and related organizations across the United States and in more than 30 other nations. The BIO Investor Forum is an international biotech investor conference focused on early and established private companies as well as emerging public companies. The 2017 BIO Investor Forum was hosted in San Francisco, California in October 17-18.

Nature Chemical Biology published NIH SBIR supported research by scientists from Intact Genomics, UW-Madison and Northwestern University.

The August issue of Nature Chemical Biology (August 2017, Vol 13, No 8) published NIH SBIR supported research – “A scalable platform to identify fungal secondary metabolites and their gene clusters” by scientists from Intact Genomics, UW-Madison and Northwestern University. The cover page of that issue was an illustration of the Fungal Artificial Chromosomes (FAC) platform, which highlights the novelty and significance of FAC technology for the discovery of fungal natural products and potential drugs leads. For more details, click http://www.nature.com/nchembio/journal/v13/n8/covers/index.html.

The cover depicts conidiophores of the fungus Aspergillus nidulans carrying a fungal artificial chromosome (FAC), imaged by a scanning electron microscope and colored artificially. Filamentous fungi are prolific producers of secondary metabolites, and the combination of FAC technology with metabolomic scoring enables the high-throughput linkage of these metabolites with their biosynthetic gene clusters.
