Screening new microorganisms producing compounds of interest. The collected strains will be further applied in drug development, environmental treatment, food preservation and conversion of agricultural biomass into biofuel, biofertilizer...

Design of strains super-producing desired products, such as antibiotics, particular proteins, and enzymes for industrial application.
Development of the technologies for antibiotics and enzyme production by fermentation of free as well as immobilized cells.
Research on the application of news materials in cell and enzyme immobilization for the use in bioconversion and environmental remediation.
Practice and improvement of the fermentation techniques to serve the needs of research within and outside IBT.
Improvement of fermentation system of the National Key Laboratory of Gene Technology.
