About us


BIOSYSTEMS (former BioPSEg) is a research group at the Centre of Biological Engineering of the University of Minho using competences in systems biotechnology and bioengineering to foster the development of a knowledge-based bio-economy, leading to new added-value products and processes.

The BIOSYSTEMS group research activities have as guiding streamline in Bioprocess Engineering and Computational BioSystems aiming at generating, applying and disseminating knowledge and transfer technology in Life Sciences & Biotechnological, Chemical & Environmental Processes. The structure of the group was established to address the challenges associated, while taking into account the competences on systems biotechnology and bioengineering.

Being so, the group is divided into 4 sub-groups, each one corresponding to a main scientific domain:
