Adaptive evolution is a powerful tool used in synthetic biology to improve the performance of microbial strains for various biotechnological applications. The technique involves the selection and propagation of genetic variants with desirable traits over multiple generations, resulting in the evolution of the microbial population towards a specific objective. One of the significant advantages of adaptive evolution is that it can be used to modify a strain's genome without the need for genetic engineering. This approach allows for the optimization of a strain's performance by selecting for natural genetic variation that confers a selective advantage under specific growth conditions.
CD Biosynsis has a mature technology and platform, which is the preferred choice for adaptive evolution services in the biotechnology industry.

At CD Biosynsis, we offer a range of services for adaptive evolution, specifically designed to meet the needs of clients in the biotechnology industry. Our services for adaptive evolution can be divided into three main categories:
Our strain isolation services involve the identification of microbial strains with desirable traits, such as increased growth rates, improved product yields, and enhanced stress tolerance. We use a range of techniques to isolate these strains, including:
Screening of natural microbial populations
Selection of mutants
Once the desired strain has been isolated, we proceed with strain characterization. This involves the analysis of the strain's genetic and phenotypic properties, including:
By characterizing the strain in detail, we can better understand its strengths and weaknesses and identify areas for improvement.
The next step in our adaptive evolution services is strain optimization. This involves the selection and propagation of genetic variants with desirable traits over multiple generations, resulting in the evolution of the microbial population towards a specific objective. We use a range of techniques to optimize strains, including:
