Tittel

Integrative analysis of extremophiles in search for new biotechnological solutions

Vitenskapelig sammendrag

The development of a sustainable bioindustrial economy requires replacing chemical processes by green, renewable bio-based alternatives. Microorganisms represent the best potential target for biotechnology. Among them, the extremophiles (microorganisms living, for example, under extreme temperature and pH values) include the most resistant cells and enzymes required to support the hardiest industrial processes. This action focuses on searching for new hydrolytic biocatalysts, a first step in biotransforming complex residues into assimilable molecules. The strategy includes the major stages: cells, genomes, enzymes and mathematics as an integral approach to model, design and discover novel biocatalysts such as highly resistant enzymes or novel functionality for existing genes. This project will involve four research groups, one Norwegian and three Spanish teams. The aim is to join multidisciplinary views to generate biotechnological solutions and advancement into the hydrolysis of cellular material and residues.
