The multidisciplinary research projects in the centre combine biotechnology with digital technology in health, aquaculture, agriculture, and industrial biotechnology. 12 large projects are led by project leaders from universities and research institutes supported by the Norwegian Research Council, in addition to 8 associated partner projects.
Emulating life in 3D with digital and experimental tissue models
Adaptive Heuristics and Architecture
Microbial production of omega-3 fatty acids - a model based approach
Big insight from big data
Systems analysis and fundamental control of bacterial processes in the production of bio-concrete for construction purposes
Centre for Cancer Biomarkers
As it swims along the Norwegian cost line, the cod can be a good indicator on the state of our marine environment. Now scientists want to find out how different pollutants and combinations of them affect the cod.
Digital discovery of antimicrobial molecules from marine Artic resources with reduced risk of triggering resistance.
From genes to brain function in health and disease
Digital Salmon - From a reactive to a pre-emptive research strategy in aquaculture
An easier life with diabetes.
Combinatorial drug treatment for cancer
To discover and optimize new antibiotics.
There is an urgent need to develop new drugs to combat antibiotic resistance. The solution can be surprisingly close, in microorganisms living in the Trondheim fjord.
Biophotonic sensor platform for diagnostics.
Elucidation of biological nanoparticle formation mechanisms.
Optimized oxidative enzyme systems for efficient conversion of lignocellulose to valuable products.
A database to understand Parkinson’s disease
Personalised cancer therapy
Responsibility, practice and the public good across Digital Life.
Research and innovation projects funded by directed calls in the Norwegian Research Council’s program Biotechnology for Innovation (BIOTEK2021) become a part of the centre. In addition, other relevant projects are welcome to apply to join the centre.
