Pichia pastoris is a preferred host for heterologous protein production. Expression cassettes are usually integrated into the genome of this methylotrophic yeast. This manuscript describes a method for fast and reliable gene copy number determinations for P. pastoris expression strains. We believe that gene copy number determinations are important for all(More)
BACKGROUND In Pichia pastoris bioprocess engineering, classic approaches for clone selection and bioprocess optimization at small/micro scale using the promoter of the alcohol oxidase 1 gene (PAOX1), induced by methanol, present low reproducibility leading to high time and resource consumption.
