Research
Bioprocessing

Understanding biofilm biology is central for establishing and optimising a range of bioprocesses mediated by microorganisms. This core research theme covers a range of specific and broader applications. The bioprocesses can be mediated by very specific alterations that target either the biofilm matrix or cells within the matrix. Alternatively, system-wide manipulations can be implemented to achieve desired bioprocessing outcomes. SCELSE is developing technologies for maximising waste-to-feed circular economy applications, biofilms for biotechnological applications (e.g. light-responsive), microbial solvent production, and probiotic and bioactive delivery systems.
