What we do
SilicoLife

SilicoLife designs optimised microorganisms and novel pathways for industrial biotechnology applications, based on artificial intelligence and metabolic engineering approaches, shortening the development time and costs of new highly effective processes for the production of specific target compounds such as chemicals, food ingredients or biopolymers.




What we do

SilicoLife builds computational models of microbial cells and develops proprietary state-of-the-art algorithms to find the most efficient pathways between raw-materials and end-products, enabling clients to streamline the strain design process and explore non-intuitive pathway modifications, dramatically cutting down costs in their development programs and reducing laboratory experimentation. SilicoLife provides a complete package from genomic annotation to the validation of the optimised microbial strain and also the evaluation of the incorporation of heterologous pathways into the host cell. The optimised strains enable increasing the productivity and yield of bio-processes by maximising the fluxes in the metabolic pathways linking raw-material uptake and product production.

Leading chemical, materials and synthetic biology companies have chosen SILICO as a development partner to maintain their market edge in increasingly competitive markets. SILICO is also a partner in several European projects (10+), such as DD-DeCaF – bioinformatics services for data-driven design of cell factories and communities, BRIGIT – development of the next generation of bio-based polymers; several projects in the ERA-NET on Industrial Biotechnology and Marine Biotechnology and is also leading national initiatives (2) in industrial biotechnology topics.
