As of January 2021 CHAIN will no longer directly supply molecular tools and engineered strains developed at the Synthetic Biology Research Centre at the University of Nottingham. We will continue to manage this site and deal with any enquiries.

Clostridium are an industrially and medically important genus of bacteria. However, this diverse group of obligate anaerobes are difficult to manipulate genetically. New engineering biology tools are now available that support precision engineering and genetic manipulation of Clostridia. These tools and strains can be used for Clostridium focused research and can be applied to the development and commercialisation of Clostridium-based technology and products.
