Research and Development

          At COSMOS BIOTECH LLP we are producing various compatible solutes that are synthesized by many extremophiles. Compatible solutes act as osmolytes and help the organisms to survive under extreme conditions such as high salt, temperature, and UV. These compatible solutes have huge demand in pharma and cosmetic industries. In cosmetic industry these molecules are used as anti-aging products to protect human keratinocytes against UV induced DNA damage. In our company we are producing various compatible solutes using recombinant DNA technology, synthetic biology, and various bioprocessing methods. In collaboration with National Institute of Ocean Technology(NIOT) we isolate many indigenous extremophiles from active volcanic Barrens Island, Andaman and Nicobar, Port Blair. Later, we isolate the responsible genes of the metabolic pathway clone and express them in a suitable host cell line (Fig.1).
