#BioRes-1

Development of green and white biotechnologies

  • Domesticating and breeding new species to take advantage of less productive soils and uncultivated lands; exploiting intermediate crops
  • Characterising the phenotypes and genotypes associated with the mechanisms underlying lignocellulose and lipid production
  • Applying synthetic biology to systems biology methods for modelling and design

Agricultural and forestry systems have long provided us with food, energy, materials, and biobaser chemical. The objective of #BioRes-1 is to take advantage of plants and their properties when developing bioeconomic products and processes. The BAP  and EFPA  divisions are studying biological materials that can be modified by green and white biotechnologies. Side by side with the MEM  metaprogramme, the MICA  and CEPIA  divisions are exploring potential catalysts, including enzymes, microorganisms, and microbial associations. The overarching goal is to improve both efficacy and efficiency. This research exploits advances in high-throughput biology and high-precision molecular engineering being carried out by the BAP , CEPIA , MICA , and MIA  divisions and the MEM  metaprogramme. The MIA  division is also contributing to this objective by modelling metabolic networks, from the level of regulation to synthetic biology. The  MEM  metaprogramme is delving into a promising scientific field, and its work should lead to the innovative engineering of microbial ecosystems.
