I have been culturing kombucha for a bit now and I would like to get into genetic engineering/modification, so I was thinking a good place to start could be to make glowing kombucha. I was thinking I would do it in a similar way to how The Thought Emporium made glowing mead/beer/wine. I guess my question is, should the process/DNA shown for those yeasts be directly transferable to kombucha?
My main reason for asking this is that kombucha is a symbioses of yeast and bacteria, so I am thinking I might have to separate the yeast and the bacteria in order to modify them. Also, I do not know which species of yeasts and bacteria are in my particular kombucha, would it be necessary to figure that out in order find the right DNA for this edit, or is it enough to know that I have yeast and bacteria?
If anyone has any input that would be very helpful.
