The Design Build Test Learn Capabilities and Infrastructure at VTT

Harnessing microbes for industrial purposes using synthetic biology requires a systematic design build test learn cycle approach - utilizing all the available tools on top of traditional lab work. From computational modelling, to automation robotics, analytics and machine learning.


At VTT the infrastructure and know-how in biotechnology and synthetic biology build on decades of experience and excellent inhouse facilities from lab to pilot scale-testing.


Before doing wet lab trials, synthetic biology offers tools for predicting the outcome of metabolic engineering of an organism. This includes a fascinating area of computational tools, analytics and machine learning for engineering biology.

At VTT Paula Jouhtens team is specialized in this highly complex field of science.
