The Department of Biotechnology engages in internationally leading education programmes and ground-breaking research as a basis for scientific, technological and societal innovation in industrial and environmental biotechnology.
Biotechnology research activities consist of the following research groups:
- Analytical Biotechnology
- Bioprocess Engineering
- Cell Systems Engineering
- Environmental Biotechnology
- Industrial Microbiology
- Biotechnology and Society
Intensive collaboration with industry and other national research groups has led to the establishment of two national research centres, both coordinated by the Department of Biotechnology:
- The Kluyver Centre for Genomics of Industrial Fermentation
- Bio-based, Ecologically Balanced Sustainable Industrial Chemistry (BE-Basic), building on Bio-based Sustainable Industrial Chemistry (B-BASIC)
