About us

Microbes live inside in communities and are unique to every living organism (“Signature”). Jananom has developed proprietary phytofiberceutic formulations which are essential for the sustenance of microbial biodiversity – “feed me – feed my microbiome”. Jananom focusses on the confluence of food, drugs and the gut microbiome.

Biomolecular Engineering

Integrated Productivity Management Tools

Saccharomyces cerevisiae: Genomic tool kits, repository of molecular transporters, detoxifying enzymes, vectors & cassettes for stably assembling multiple genes & pathways, single gene integration vectors, transposon based integration.

E.coli: Genome integration vectors (several gene assembly /integration)

Microbiota Modulators

Individual’s microbiome and its metabolome is key for one’s well-being. New insights into dietary plant fibers (phyto origin) has renewed interest on fibers, going beyond just digestive health.

Jananom has developed proprietary formulations of diverse phytofiberceutics from its platform. These formulations are designed based on extensive research publications.
