Molecular Biotechnology Group
The outputs of the continuous efforts of CBMA's present team throughout the last years are presented in detail in the following sections. There, it can be understood the strategic development of the areas of research which dedicate to research using human cell models, as well as the areas of research that allow a bridge between Molecular Biology and Ecology through the studies of biodiversity through barcode DNA technology. Additionally, it is also visible a significant development of the applied areas translated by the increasing number of patents and industrial contracts.
Cell Factories and Nanotechnologies
The knowledge and experience acquired by our team over the years in cell physiology, biochemistry, molecular biology, genomics, proteomics and fermentation technology has created a sustainable knowledge which allows for an inter-relating of both fundamental and applied research fields. The work developed under the scope of our research lines covers an assortment of topics strategically devoted to R&D projects with potential industrial applications but having as the principal basis biotechnological, molecular genetics and recombinant DNA technology approaches.
Yeast food technology: bread & wine
Bread- and winemaking represent a multi-billion Euro industry that is expected to increase much above the general market growth in the future. Yeast-based industries can benefit considerably from holistic “system-level” research. Our multidisciplinary team joins competences in yeast physiology and genetics, wine chemistry, computational signal processing and data fusion, to take knowledge beyond the state of the art regarding yeast phenomics, yeast-based systems biology and nanobiotechnology, with particular emphasis on yeast biotechnology.
