DDNA selected to pitch at the “Fast track it!” pitch contest by TWB®

On 2&3 February 2021, in the frame of the 4th digital edition of TWB® START-UP DAY, the “Fast track it!” pitch contest is organised dedicated to established start-ups developing their technologies. We are proud to announce that DDNA is selected to pitch at this contest. Peter Punt, our CSO, will present our company. DDNA is […]

Back-to-Mono: More news on synthetic polymer recycling

In a recently concluded collaboration between Leiden University and Dutch DNA Biotech, novel biological approaches using fungi were explored to recycle synthetic polymers, in particular from matrasses. This research project provided a perfect industrial fit to the news that The Netherlands is a front-runner in matrass recycling. Students from various Dutch universities contributed both in the lab and […]

On 10 November 2020, Peter Punt, Wouter de Bonte and Jean-Paul Meijnen will join the digital event of the Netherlands Biotechnology Congress and present a poster on the latest technological developments of DDNA’s hyper protein production system. Meet use online!

Meet us at ECFG15 in Rome

The 15th edition of the European Conference on Fungal Genetics (17-20 February) will be attended by Peter Punt and Wouter de Bonte. We are looking forward to share our recent advances in designing an industrial protein production host and show some intriguing research in the field of organic acid production. If you want to meet […]

Over 100 gr/l, joining the centennial club

Our industrious A. niger has joined the centennial club by being capable of producing more than 100 g/L protein titers. Possibly even more exciting than the protein titers is the remarkably low viscosity of our strain; a yeast-like fermentation produces filamentous fungus-like protein titers. This breakthrough in our platform strain will enable Dutch DNA Biotech […]

Developments on organic acid production

As a new addition to our research on metabolic pathway engineering, we have recently published the results of our research and collaborations in the framework of the ERA-IB TTRaFFIC project on Metabolic engineering and fermentation optimization improve itaconic acid production in Aspergillus niger. In this paper we show how we have successfully improved our patented […]
