SINTMOL Biotechnology: The SINTMOL served by the Biotransformation, Fermentation, Biocatalysis, and Bioassay Laboratory
Bioassays: The laboratory is equipped to bioassay synthetic organic compounds, particularly to explore features related to:
Biotransformation/biocatalysis: Enzymes and microorganisms are employed to biotransform and biocatalyze organic substrates (bioactive or otherwise) to trigger or potentiate biological activity.
Molecular bioprospection: The focus is mainly on finding the solutions for drug resistant infections (bacterial and fungi).
Production of antibiotics: We are interested in producing 6-APA and 7-ACA by biotechnological processes.
The laboratory is managed by:
