Enzymology and Synthetic Biology
CSIRO Ecosystem Sciences research is contributing to new bioindustries in a number of ways.
5 February 2010 | Updated 14 October 2011
Our research focuses on the development of new industrial biotechnologies and biomaterials, environmental biotechnology, enzymology and sensory biology.
We are involved in research on:
- manipulating enzyme and structural protein function and structure to create new biochemical pathways and biomaterials
- understanding the biomolecular basis of odour and taste discrimination, leading to a biomimetic and bioinspired approach to rapid volatile sensing for food, health and security applications.
The Enzymology and Synthetic Biology Program is involved in a range of research activities and projects:
