Together with the material equipment, and as a result of the work carried out in the recent years regarding the fields of regenerative medicine and drug controlled release, the group has:
Bank / synthetic gene library containing more than 250 genes and 30 “building blocks”. The latter can be combined quickly to generate new late genes for the design of materials with different applications. All of them, both final and “building blocks” of high interest in biomedical applications.
Bank of transgenic bacterial strains able of producing more than 40 protein polymers designed for various applications.
