VTT is among the world leaders in research in enzymology, metabolic engineering and chemistry to develop new technologies, measurement tools and production processes to our clients globally.

We are on the verge of a biotechnological revolution. In the near future, we will see exciting and even wild applications, services and products coming from the field of biotechnology. In addition to altering consumers’ everyday lives, biotechnology is transforming industrial processes in chemical, energy, food, pharmaceutical and pulp & paper industries, just to name a few.  

Synthetic DNA can be incorporated into creating increasingly efficient production organisms.

At VTT we work in multidisciplinary teams and in close collaboration with our clients in creating sustainable industrial biotechnical solutions. Protein production, enzyme discovery, metabolic engineering, systems biology and fermentation technologies are researched in our state-of-the-art facilities.

Industrial biotechnology is all about using living organisms in industrial production. The industry is developing fast, thanks to various scientific findings during the recent years. At VTT our research expertise extends to synthetic biology which enables researchers to design the genetic code of an organism to fit their needs. Synthetic DNA can be incorporated into the production of microbe’s genetic material, creating increasingly efficient production organisms.
