Research Infrastructure

Spanish National Centre of Biotechnology

Description The National Centre for Biotechnology (Centro Nacional de BiotecnologĂ­a, CNB) was inaugurated in 1992 with the vision to create a multidisciplinary research centre that engages in the most relevant areas of red and green Biotechnology. The CNB mission is to provide innovative solutions to four major societal challenges faced by European citizens, namely Infectious Diseases, Inflammation & Cancer, Sustainability of Food Production, and Environmental Pollution. The Centre hosts 70 research groups, organised into 6 Research Departments (Macromolecular Structures, Cellular & Molecular Biology, Immunology & Oncology, Microbial Biotechnology, Plant Molecular Genetics, Systems Biology). Leading-edge research facilities have positioned the CNB on the roadmap of international projects aimed at shaping science globally, such as the INSTRUCT Image Processing Centre, the ESFRI reference centre for image processing in electron and X-ray microscopy within the largest European infrastructure for Structural Biology; the European Mouse Mutant Archive EMMA and the ESFRI Project INFRAFRONTIER, European hubs for large-scale phenotyping and archiving of mouse mutant lines; and the participation of the CNB in the Human Proteome Project as leader of the Spanish work on chromosome 16.
