Molecular Biotechnology

© Fraunhofer IZI

The Molecular Biotechnology Unit develops and establishes cellular and molecular assay systems. The methods comprise cell-based assays, analysis of gene expression, immunological methods, protein biochemistry, complex cell culture models as well as animal experiments. The unit further provides service for cellular compound screening such as efficacy, toxicity and transport. In addition, a main focus is on establishing and validating animal models for the investigation of the enzyme functions.
