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”. Besides, a cutting edge proprietary platform to deliver therapeutics via bioengineering of microbes is also under development.

Verticals

Novel Therapeutic delivery platform through microbiome bio-engineering – TMB

...

The objectives of drug delivery is to safely deliver drugs into human beings in a cost effective way. However current drug delivery systems are broken which needs extensive ADMET optimization, finding the right formulation, modulating the dosage and requiring repetitive visits to the clinic which has not seen any dramatic improvements in the past few decades.

Jananom's discovery and design platform - TMB - intends to mitigate these challenges where microbes will safely carry the genetic message for producing therapeutics inside the human microbiome environment.

Biomolecular Engineering

...
Integrated Productivity Management Tools from Tropical Biodiversity

Saccharomyces cerevisiae: Genomic tool kits, vectors & cassettes for stably assembling multiple genes & pathways, single gene integration vectors, transposon based integration.

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

Transporters & Decorating tool kit

...

Repository of transporters uniquely handpicked from tropical biodiversity to cater to specific chemical classes to vastly improve downstream product recovery.

Toxicity management of products by decoration of molecules with sugars and other functional groups to improve productivity

PhytoFiberCeutics – PFC

...

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 “natural molecular kitchen” that are assembled from carefully chosen widely used plants.
