The Institute for Integrative Systems Biology (I²SysBio) is a joint research institute of the Universitat de València (UV) and the State Agency of the Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC), open to strategic alliances with biotechnology companies.
The I²SysBio Scientific Programs focus on research into structure, function, dynamics, evolution, and manipulation of complex biological systems.
The mission of I²SysBio can be defined within five areas of action:
- Create a multi- and inter-disciplinary work environment where scientists from different backgrounds work together dynamically and continuously to solve common problems.
- Develop high-quality research and achieve excellence in the field of integrative systems biology.
- Produce high value-added knowledge with potential transfer to industry.
- Train researchers in a multidisciplinary field with broad future projection.
- Boost the development of integrative systems biology in Spain.
The I²SysBio’s aim is to become an international reference center in the development of integrative systems biology and, in particular, from an evolutionary perspective. At the same time, the I²SysBio seeks to provide solutions to problems that may arise in the pharmaceutical, biotechnological, biomedical and agribusiness sectors that are open to a systems approach (e.g., through metabolic engineering and synthetic biology).
I2SysBio provides R&D solutions to the problems that occur in different sectors linked with biological systems such as the pharmaceutical, biotechnological, biomedical, agro-industrial and environmental sectors. The researchers of the centre deal with this problems with systematic approaches by using biochemical tools, microbiology, genetic engineering, metabolic engineering, biology of systems and synthetic biology.
In order to make technological transfer easier, I2SysBio offers a new model of agreements between public and private organisations that allow private companies to develop their R&D projects in our laboratories within the research programmes of the institute. These agreements are based on the close interaction between the researchers of I2SysBio and the researchers of the companies in the laboratories of the institute.
The Units of Projects and Transfer of Knowledge of the Universitat de València and CSIC are in charge alongside with the researchers of I2Sysbio of promoting and making the cooperation agreements easier with the companies and other entities of the socio-economic environment.
- Computational Biology
- Omic Technologies
- Plant Cultivation. Study of Plant diseases
- Virology Applied to Humans
- Systems Biology. Synthetic Biology. Metabolic Engineering of Systems
Our research programs focus on the structure, function, dynamics, evolution and manipulation of complex biological systems, fundamentally of microorganisms (viruses, bacteria and fungi) open to a systemic approach through the use of metabolic engineering and synthetic biology tools with an applied vision.
The I2SysBio maintains different collaborations at national and international levels with many public and private R&D entities (universities, foundations, R&D centers, technology centers, etc.), and with all types of companies, SMEs or large multinationals, as well as with different social agents. We are open to collaborations to develop new products, processes and services.
