Université Picardie Jules Verne (GEC)

The CNRS laboratory “Enzyme and Cell Engineering” (GEC, FRE 3580 CNRS) is a Joint Research Unit located at Amiens, Picardie Jules Verne University (UPJV) and at Compiègne University of Technology (UTC). Researches activities revolve around two main areas: plant metabolism and bioresources; and biomimetic and molecular diversity. GEC has acquired a strong national and international recognition in the field of biotechnology and especially in biocatalysis, plant biotechnology including biosourced materials and molecules as well as biomimicry. The unit aims at combining a better understanding of cellular and biological processes with the application of novel biotechnological approaches and technologies.
