Metabolic Engineering Division


Inmet is a specialized vehicle of INDEAR created to provide R&D services in the field of bacteria metabolic engineering.

Key Strategic Partners:

  • Dr. Diego De Mendoza, professor of microbiology at UNR and member of CONICET
  • Dr. Gustavo Schujman, professor of bacterial genetics at UNR and member of CONICET

Develop metabolic engineering solutions for the conversion of agricultural feedstock and the production of high-value molecules.

Key Initiative:
Currently utilizing genetically engineered B. subtilis strains for conversion of low-cost sources of organic carbon to higher value molecules and/or compounds such as biopolymers, biodiesel and others.

Other Features:
Inmet combines INDEAR’s Genomics, Protein Tech and Process Engineering platforms with its own Metabolomics and Fermentation capabilities to provide an iterative approach for its development pipeline.
