Bioinformatics and the Blue Amazon

Biotechnology researchers work on the search for compounds or organisms and select those with important biological, chemical, physiological or genetic properties for industrial processes and products. Together with the bioinformatics team, they sequence genes and/or genomes of marine organisms that have biotechnological potential and create metagenomic libraries to decipher natural gene sequences of biotechnological interest, using the most advanced computational techniques for molecular optimization. The bioinformatics team is also responsible for the management of an integrated database of biodiversity, environmental and oceanographic parameters created for the entire time series of the INCT on Biodiversity of the Blue Amazon and for previous data from many research groups (Big Data).
