About This Project

This page serves as an archive of our first proof-of-concept experiments to genetically modify microalgae before founding MicroSynbiotiX. We were partially successful in expressing proinsulin. We were successful in genetically modifying a strain of microalgae to express recombinant proteins (GFP), fish vaccines, and we even began fish vaccine trials with our first candidate product. Fish vaccines are our priority now, but we will revisit insulin and human therapeutics soon!

Blast off!
