Jülich Biofoundry

Solutions for automated microbial bioprocess development

Welcome to the Jülich Biofoundry, a unique infrastructure at IBG-1 that will revolutionize biotechnology. Our mission is to accelerate scientific discovery and innovation in biotechnology by providing a state-of-the-art environment for researchers, students and industry professionals.
At the Jülich Biofoundry we use advanced technologies, such as robotics, high-throughput screening, quantitative omics methods, and computer-aided strain design to streamline and accelerate the engineering of enzymes, microbial producers, and bioprocesses.

Our Expertise
Unleashing the potential of microorganisms, we excel in metabolic engineering. By manipulating metabolic pathways, we optimize the production of valuable compounds, such as proteins, pharmaceuticals, and industrial chemicals. Our expertise in this field drives sustainable solutions for various industries.
We specialize in synthetic biology, where we engineer biological systems for a multitude of applications. Our team of experts leverages advanced genetic engineering techniques to design and construct custom DNA sequences, enabling the creation of novel production hosts with enhanced functionalities or to unravel the fundamental architecture of microbial metabolisms.

Collaboration and Innovation
At the Jülich Biofoundry collaboration is ingrained in our culture. Located at the Forschungszentrum Jülich we are situated at the intersection between Aachen, Cologne and Düsseldorf providing research opportunities for Bachelor, Master and Ph.D candidates of many different studies. We welcome partnerships with academia, industry, and startups to collectively push the boundaries of biotechnology.
Join us in shaping the future of biotechnology. Together, let's unlock the potential of life sciences and create a healthier, more sustainable world.
