Industrial microbiology creates novel pathways to both new and existing chemical products. By studying how Mother Nature herself synthesizes chemicals, metabolic engineers can scale Nature's work to support human life.
Prospect Bio works at the beginning of the industrial microbiology R&D pipeline by offering novel DNA sequences that can be used to create proprietary biochemical pathways. We have spent the past two years sequencing DNA from esoteric micro organisms from all over the earth. These microbes are not characterized in public DNA databases and as such represent a secure private source of novel DNA sequences.
Terms that relate to our value proposition are:
Mining - "Metabolic Mining" tagline. Here we would be emphasizing our superior mining techniques which result in increased novel target genes for pathway engineers. Some industrial microbiology R&D groups may think they can simply do the microbial metabolic mining that we do, but here we would like to emphasize both our superior abilities and how tedious the work really is (such that they don't want to do it themselves). A pick and shovel motif would be good for real miners, but for us, two pipets would be better to serve as a symbol. This would be a more humorous, light logo.
