Project Concepts

  • Establish a leading facility in mining the Environment (Biosphere) for novel enzymes and biomolecules of industrial biotechnological relevance
  • Green growth through innovative use of natural resources
  • Exploitation of extremophilic microbes with very distinctive metabolisms allowing them to survive in different extreme environments
  • Capitalise on major competitive advantage of Bangor University in this field
  • Filling a key gap in the existing Welsh R&D capacity, adding a critical new component to the existing successful network of collaborating Welsh centres
