MAIN DIRECTIONS OF SCIENTIFIC ACTIVITY
MICROBIOLOGICAL SYNTHESIS: obtaining active microbial producers of biologically active compounds (L-, D-amino acids, enzymes, bioinhibitors of pathogens, biostimulators, bacterial insecticides, biofertilizers) for the needs of medicine, pharmaceutical and food industry, agriculture using gene-selective and gene-engineering methods.
BIOTRANSFORMATION AND BIOCATALYSIS: development of biocatalytic methods for producing amino acids, peptides, enzymatic preparations, polysaccaharides and other biologically active compounds.
BIOMIMETIC ASYMMETRIC SYNTHESIS: development of effective biomimetic catalysts and methods for the synthesis of enantiomerically pure non-protein amino acids, peptides, other preparations used in pharmaceutical industry, medical diagnostics and other fields of science and engineering.
GEOBIOTECHNOLOGY: development of biotechnological approaches to metal bioleaching and metal extraction processes optimization.
ECOBIOSAFETY: processing of agricultural and food wastes, development of effective technologies.
BIOPREPARATIONS AND BIOADDITIVES: development of technologies for obtaining biologically active compounds for food, medical, pharmaceutical and cosmetic products.
