Integrative Analysis of Extremophiles in search for Biotechnological solutions (BIOINTEX)

A sustainable bioindustrial economy requires replacing chemical processes by green, renewable biobased alternatives. Microorganisms represent the best potential target for biotechnology. Among them, the extremophiles (microorganisms living, for example, under extreme temperatures or pH) include the most resistant cells and enzymes required to support the hardiest industrial processes.

This project involves four research groups, one Norwegian and three Spanish teams. The aim is to join multidisciplinary views to generate biotechnological solutions.
