CIBIO-InBIO has a longstanding tradition of providing services to the community through contracts with enterprises and other public and private entities, which are primarily provided by the autonomous facilities of the Centre for Molecular Analysis (CTM), dedicated to the evaluation and use of genetic resources, and the Centre for Studies and Projects in Applied Ecology (GEPE), dedicated to environmental impact assessment and mitigation, conservation management and biodiversity monitoring.


The CTM unit has recently been significantly strengthened with the installation of a Next Generation DNA-Sequencing Platform that will very soon be ready to provide a complete NGS service package, including sample/library preparation, a vast selection of sequencing techniques/approaches, and bioinformatics.

CIBIO-InBIO is also involved in GenomePortugal Research Infrastructure: a national consortium involving nearly all laboratories with NGS capacity, which is expected to further strengthen CTM capacity to provide services at national and international levels.

 

The activities of GEPE in the fields of ecology, nature conservation and monitoring of biodiversity are being significantly boosted by our protocol with ICNF (the National Institute for Nature & Forest Conservation).

 

Additionally, ongoing protocols with companies like REFER, REN, EDP, ASCENDI, CIMPOR and ACHLI are allowing to transfer knowledge to industry at a significant level.

 

Finally, since 2006 we have been collaborating with the biotech company StabVida in the area of genetics applied to several aspects of biology and animal health.

 

 

 

 

The links with society and the environment are unquestionably a key concern driving the activity of CIBIO-InBIO. Accordingly, framed within the scope of the Center's knowledge transfer activities, a special interest group - AliensWatch - has recently emerged. AliensWatch is a national netwrok, coordinated by CIBIO-InBIO researcher Joana R. Vicente, whih brings together experts from various fields to address the impact  of biological invasions.
