I2SysBio counts with the support of a biotechnology company located in the UV Science Park, Biopolis S.L. Its most distinctive feature is its infrastructure and expertise in genomics, microbial biotechnology and industrial fermentation. The company employs over 40 staff (18 PhD-holders) whose work focuses on the food industry and chemical-pharmaceutical industry. Many of its research developments involve the use of metabolic engineering, so for this company, the proximity to I2SysBio is strategic. Likewise, I2SysBio can benefit from the industrial-scale fermentation facilities at Biopolis S.L., which will enable their research activity to exceed that of other similar institutes working on the systems biology of microorganisms.
