Integrating Informatics and Metabolic Engineering for the biosynthesis of Novel Antibiotics

Welcome to the homepage of the iimena project consortium

 

The iimena-project aims to integrate state-of-the art screening technologies, bioinformatics and metabolic engineering approches in order to identify and characterize novel secondary metabolites from actinomycetes, which can become lead-candidates for antibiotic drug development.

The iimena-project is funded by a Challenge Grant of the:
