Eco – Tips, the technical-environmental line of the ECO-GENTECH corporate program, whose main objective is to improve researchers’ knowledge of the characteristics of the different plastic ware used in the laboratory, facilitating decision-making on the technical characteristics of plastic inputs and their suitability for each process, improving efficiency and reducing the loss of reagents
Gentech Biosciences, understand the connection between research activities and laboratory practices with the health of the planet and the impact of improper waste use and disposal. Every day we work to promote corporate strategies and to improve processes and routine methods that enhance sustainable practices in our processes and those of our customers. Every day we work to promote corporate strategies and improvements in processes and routine methods that enhance sustainable practices in our processes and those of our customers.
As a company committed with the environmental sustainability, articulated with the Sustainable Development Goals – SDGs, our environmental program ECO – GENTECH is constructed and structured, as a corporate strategy that seeks to make us, as a company aware of minimizing the negative footprint of our activities over the environment and to be better administrators of the environment.
GreenLab Metrics 4.0 is a line of ECO-GENTECH that integrally to the processes of accreditation and Good Laboratory Practices (GLP), seeks to ensure that laboratory practices are performed in a way that guarantees biosafety in the internal and external environment of the laboratory, as well as economic and environmental sustainability.
GreenLab Metrics 4.0, is an ECO-GENTECH initiative that integrates the processes of accreditation and Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) with International requirements. It seeks to ensure that practices in research and service laboratories are carried out in a way that guarantees biosafety in the internal and external environment of the laboratory, as well as economic and environmental sustainability.
The program seeks to strengthen knowledge and practices in laboratories that minimize, eliminate or even reverse negative environmental impact, improving (substitution of toxic chemicals) and simplifying procedures (smaller or micro scale), optimizing flow charts/spaces and assessing energy consumption and saving strategies to improve efficiency in the use of energy and determine the level or degree of technological updating requirements by laboratory area.
The mitochondrial genome contains a total of 37 genes of which 13 genes codify for messenger RNAs, and as a consequence for 13 proteins, 22 genes codify for 22 tRNAs (transfer RNAs) and 2 genes codify for two mitochondrial rRNAs (ribosomal RNAs). In practice, when sequencing the myocrondrial DNA of a particular person, a number of variations are observed that are simply polymorphisms of no clinical consequence. In fact, one region of the mitochondrial DNA, called the control region, is so polymorphic that it is used in forensic medicine to identify the subject.
In humansmutations in some of the mitochondrial genes cause diseases, thus the relevance and application of sequencing of these cellular organelles.
The mitochondrial DNA or genome (mitogenome) generally has maternal inheritance, low recombination rate and high evolutionary rates, so it is widely used as a phylogenetic marker to resolve evolutionary relationships at different taxonomic levels.

Metagenome sequencing is a method for identifying microbial communities in different environments. It is primarily used to analyze the distribution and types of bacteria and fungi. It is used to determine which microbial community complexes are present in a sample collected in a given environment and to identify their interactions and roles.
Shotgun metagenomic sequencing is a method of complete sampling of the genes in the organism present in a composite sample. This method is capable of assessing microbial diversity and determining species abundance under different conditions.
Shotgun metagenomic sequencing provides information on what organisms are present and what metabolic processes take place in the microbial community.
Metagenomic sequencing of amplicons allows efficient identification of the diversity of microorganisms in a specific environment by sequencing genomespecific regions of microorganisms.
Transcriptome sequencing by next generation sequencing (NGS) is a fast and reliable method to identify genomic information. Gentech provides whole RNA transcriptome expression services, enabling the discovery of new genes, identification of new SNPs and InDel, discovery of new splice variants and chromosomal rearrangements, identification of fusion genes, and determination of differential gene expression.
Transcriptome sequencing, which targets RNA, is one of the most widely used research methods. When studying a living organism without reference genome information, transcriptome analysis of the living organism is possible by de novo assembly. The difference in gene expression values (expression profile) can be verified by transcriptome analysis.
De Novo Sequencing De novo sequencing is typically performed when there is no prior knowledge of an organism’s sequencing data. Sequencing De novosequencing has proven effective in confirming an extension of results from database searches, providing excellent resources for understanding a species
Some of the most important information obtained by DNA resequencing of an organism’s genome is individual variation in the genome, such as single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP), copy number variation (CNV) and structural variation (SV).
