Using data from the Venus-Sun transit on 8th of June 2004, one can make estimates about the feasability of making positive spectral detections of biomarkers in extrasolar planet atmospheres. During the transit, transmission spectra from venusian atmospheric layers were measured in three wavelength regions in the near-infrared. Absorption lines of the most abundant molecule CO2 and its isotopes were detected. The line-by-line, high-resolution radiative transfer program SQuIRRL (Schwarzschild Quadrature Infrared Radiation Line-by-line) was used to calculate and validate the observed absorption lines
