Industrial, plant and environmental biotechnologies

Study of microbial, viral and plant biomolecular mechanisms in order to discover, develop and test cutting edge biotechnologies, readily employable in industrial, agricultural and environmental sectors

Biotech research aims at discovering and developing novel methods to synthesize complex molecules, often biological in origin, using biological vectors: cells, enzymes or entire living systems. The applicational purpose is to increase the yield and quality of products beneficial to society, such as food, fertilizers, pharmaceutical drugs and medical solutions. The approach used merges synergistically techniques from basic and applied research in the fields of biology, chemistry and computer sciences.
