R4B to revolutionise biotechnology

The innovation component of the project is based on the recent discovery by consortium partners that bacteria are able to improve the efficiency of specific cellular processes by confining them in specialised subcellular membrane compartments, the so called bacterial lipid rafts.

Engineering the bacterial cells, Rafts4Biotech will target biotechnologically relevant reactions into these specialised membrane structures, thus eliminating unwanted cross reactions and toxicity, a fact that will highly increase the productivity of the industrial processes.

The joined work of our experienced team of partners will ensure that this novel and versatile technology is successfully transferred from the lab to the market and make a real impact in the European industry.
