Biosciences and Biotechnologies Institute of Aix-Marseille
Study of energy bioconversion process in photosynthetic and microbial organisms
Molecular mechanisms of perception of the environment in connection with the energy storage mechanisms
Environmental resources for sustainable energy and development
The institute is interested in the living responses to environ-mental constraints, the bio-conversion mechanisms of energy and the production of energy-rich molecules (bio-energy). It develops biotechnology to safeguard the quality of the environment and health (biosensing & bioremediation) or to produce biofuels
