The projects originates from one or more of the following categories: Health, aquaculture, agriculture, and industrial biotechnology. They are all transdisciplinary, combining biotechnology with digital technology. 12 large collaborative projects are led by project leaders from universities and research institutes supported by the Norwegian Research Council.
Emulating life in 3D with digital and experimental tissue models
Microbial production of omega-3 fatty acids - a model based approach
Systems analysis and fundamental control of bacterial processes in the production of bio-concrete for construction purposes
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: The balance between sugar and insulin is a perpetual challenge for diabetics. It quickly becomes too much or too little. An artificial pancreas will ensure proper blood glucose levels around the cloc...
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.
Lab-on-a-chip. Biophotonic sensor platform for diagnostics.
Optimized oxidative enzyme systems for efficient conversion of lignocellulose to valuable products.
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.
