Research fields are marine biotechnology, bioprospecting, enzyme discovery, enzyme development, protein production, molecular biology. We offer competence within biotechnological solutions for the bio-based marine industry. Our focus is to develop enzymes designed for the industry. We are working on enzyme discovery, but also on optimization of existing enzymes. The methods we are using are bioprospecting, functional screening of enzyme activity, state-of-the-art recombinant cloning, heterologous expression of proteins in prokaryotic and eukaryotic systems, enzyme production, enzyme activity, development of enzyme assays, protein purification, immunoblotting, lab and project management.
