The "Biotechnology" group of the Italian Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology will supports the development of technological innovation based on the use of biological molecules and (micro) organisms. The main interests lie in the field of health biotechnology, on the discovery and development of biological products for new drugs, vaccines, biopolymers, nanomaterials, diagnostic systems and biosensors. In the sector of industrial biotechnologies, focusing attention on biocatalysis and biotransformations, to cellular and metabolic engineering (synthetic biology), to the development of cell factories to obtain high-quality and added products from renewable sources. In the area of biotechnologies for nutrition, for the environment, and for agriculture with the aim of supporting innovative and sustainable solutions through biochemistry. The new one engages in communication and in the group dissemination of acquired knowledge to society and in the training of new generations of biotechnologies with congressional and educational initiatives.
