Description
At InBio.be - Ghent University, a diverse team of researchers strives to transform microbial (lab) strains into cell factories, as such enabling the transition towards a biobased economy. To accomplish this goal, state of the art interdisciplinary techniques are applied in an integrated approach, combining molecular tool-, strain- and process development. InBio.be has been active in the field of industrial biotechnology for over 15 years, amongst others resulting in the founding of the spin off company Inbiose. Moreover, InBio.be's close collaboration with the Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant in several research projects, enables to bring cutting edge technologies to the next level, through process development and scale up.
