(Bio)Chemistry & Omics

The (Bio)Chemistry & OMICS group is a multidisciplinary research group composed of analytical and inorganic chemists, biochemists, biologists, biochemists, veterinaries, materials science, and biotechnological researchers. Their common goal is to attain new insight into complex biological systems using multidisciplinary approaches. Several research labs work within an integrative and cooperative approach, with a strong relationship with several universities, hospitals, and industries.

The group has an extensive experience in the synthesis of organic, inorganic, and multifunctional dyes, in nanoparticles and nanomaterials, in innovative approaches for large-scale identification of biomolecules, quantification and characterization of small molecules, metalloenzymes, and proteins, and in the analysis of bacteriology, mycology, and viruses samples.
