Uni Biotech: Centre for Applied Biotechnology
Uni Biotech aims to be a leading research centre within applied biotechnology – bridging industrial needs with research and converting research ideas into application.
Uni Biotech will:
- Perform high quality applied biotechnological research
- Be an attractive research partner
- Contribute to sustainable growth within Norwegian biotechnological industry
- Uni CIPR has a strong group in petroleum microbiology, with merits on research and development of biotechnological methods for microbial enhanced oil recovery (MEOR) and prevention of reservoir souring by nitrate treatment. These biotechnological solutions contributes to a more environmentally friendly and cost-effective oil production.
- Uni Environment has a broad biotechnological competence and experience from projects within environmental montitoring, vaccine development, fermentation, enzyme engineering, microalgae, and marine bioprospecting.
- Uni Computing, through the Computational Biology Unit (CBU), has since 2002 headed the national Norwegian bioinformatics platform within the Research Council of Norway funded program in functional genomics (FUGE). CBU has research activities relevant to biotechnology within sentral areas such as genomics and protein structure.
