Institute of Biotechnology

Biocenter 2 on Viikki Campus

 

BI is at the global forefront of research on cytoskeletal dynamics, the execution and evolution of morphogenetic programmes, plant, animal and microbial genomics, organelle biology, viral structure and function, and the molecular physiology of the nervous system.

BI pioneered and maintains research infrastructures that constitute Finland’s premier technology platforms for biological imaging, proteomics, protein structure and biophysics, sequencing, genomics and biocomputing.

We develop practical applications from discovery science, and commercialize them via startups. We are working on new strategies to combat neurodegeneration and metabolic disease, and improve pathogen resistance in crop plants. And we engage the public, to raise awareness of scientific issues affecting society.
