Department of Molecular Biology and Nanobiotechnology collaborates with both Slovenian and foreign pharmaceutical/biotechnology companies. This includes consulting, development of new protocols and routine experiments, and research projects tailored to the needs of these companies using modern research equipment. We use approaches from molecular biology, protein and lipid biochemistry and biophysics, structural and cell biology.
Some of the topics our department works on are: plant viruses, virus-like particles, pore-forming proteins, DNA repair complexes, synthetic protein cages, extracellular vesicles, artificial membrane systems, inorganic nanoparticles, antibodies, amyloid fibrils, peptides, aptamers, lectins, sugars, small molecules, ribosomes, and others.
We offer the following biological and biochemical studies:
