Fungi is a vast point of interest for research as they are an essential organism in the production and discovery of new antibiotics. They also produce a vast abundance of interesting proteins, such as digestive enzymes for detergents. Fungi play a crucial role in the decomposition of organic matter and can be found living in symbiosis with plants, animals, insects, and parasites.
Fungi have a significant two-sided impact on society, e.g., fungal diseases and spoilage course losses of crops. Still, fungi are also used as biological pesticides. Fungi's production of bioactive compounds called mycotoxins, including alkaloids and polyketides, is important for several industries, such as food, detergent, and pharmaceutical, to understand the underlying biological processes. Fungi biology is also essential for understanding and modulating fermentation and recombinant proteins production. Here proteomics provides a vital inside to the biological mechanisms and relevant processes.
If you’d like to learn more, we are happy to discuss your project and help you get the most out of your fungi analysis.
Our experts are ready to help you with your fungi project. Ideally, we set up an online meeting where we get to learn about your project. Here, we discuss the different options to reach your aim.
If you need an estimate for your project, we are happy to help. We encourage you to request an initial free consultation to assess which approach fits your research aim.
Proteomics can be used in a variety of different ways to extract information about fungal processes, products, or effects. The various methods provide a vast, diverse amount of opportunities and limitations. At Biogenity, we guide you through the options so we together can find the correct approach to answer your research questions.
Fungi can create various structures, microenvironments and have different membrane properties, all of which can challenge protein extraction. At Biogenity, your samples will be handled by experienced personnel who know which methods are needed to extract the proteins from your fungi samples.
We pride ourselves on being able to offer the latest equipment on the market. Our collaborating proteomics laboratory has the latest equipment from Thermo Fisher, ensuring a deep coverage. If you’d like to see the complete platform list, follow this link.
The various research aims can result in various challenges. Having different instruments allows for tailoring the instrument's use to your need. Whether you are looking for high sensitivity and accuracy to detect small changes in low abundant proteins or looking for budget-friendly methods for less complex samples, we have you covered.
Data analysis is where you get the overview of your fungi analysis. You will receive an easy-to-follow report describing the data analysis and results hereof, step-by-step, together with a folder containing all tables and figures. To ensure that you have the material needed, we always provide a vast number of figures and tables.
Biogenity’s data analysis is much more than simply a data analysis. It offers an insight into what biology is, e.g., potentially activated or deactivated in the different conditions, without the hassle of postprocessing the data. Our team does it all: data filtration, outlier testing, variance plotting with PCA, clustering, and the statistics - and that is just with the statistical data analysis.
Biogenity offers a complete analysis of your data, including statistics and bioinformatics. For bioinformatics, some fungal bioinformatic databases only provide limited information. At Biogenity, we can guide you through what databases are available and what bioinformatic output can be expected, so you only get the service when relevant. Our bioinformatic service provides enriched pathways, biological processes, molecular functions, and cellular components. We supply you with many different figures and tables, giving you an accessible overview, and our interactive plots allow you to isolate proteins of interest and explore your hypothesis.
When your fungi analysis is ready, we deliver it directly to your inbox. Your data and reports are easy to access and secured with encryption and password protection.
You can receive your sample leftovers sent by courier, or Biogenity can safely destroy them after project completion. It is entirely up to you.
Partnering with One Tree Planted, we want to work towards a brighter future with better treatment for diseases and a healthy planet to enjoy life. For us, our children, grandchildren, and the generations to come.
Biogenity donates a dozen trees for every project delivered to support local communities, reforestation in the Amazon rainforest, and reduce CO2 emissions. See how we are making a difference together.
It is important to us that you get the most out of your experiment, which is why we always offer a post-consultation where you can ask all your questions about the results. Together, we ensure that you have the best prerequisite for your further research. The consultation can also be used to explore the next step, whether you are looking to expand the project with additional omics studies or validate the results.
