Durmishidze Institute of Biochemistry and Biotechnology

General Information

The Institute was founded in 1971. Currently there are 91 employees including 3 Members of the Georgian Academy of Sciences, 1 Corresponding Member of the Georgian Academy of Sciences, 16 Doctors of Science, and 38 PhDs. There are six Departments at the Institute by the following directions:

  • Laboratory of Biotechnology
  • Laboratory of Nucleic Acids
  • Laboratory of Nitrogen Fixation and Assimilation Enzymes
  • Laboratory of Biological Oxidation
  • Laboratory of Secondary Compounds
  • Laboratory of Plant Substrates Bioconversion

Facilities: Laboratories, Green House, Pilot Plant.

Institute’s Focus

Research; Technology development; Production of different biologically active preparations.

  • Investigation of rich endemic vegetation of the Caucasus on the content of physiologically active compounds. Isolation and characterization of these compounds;
  • Creation of collection of microorganisms of different taxonomic groups from the diverse soil-climatic zones of the Caucasus with special attention to extremophiles, investigation their pathogenicity and detoxificational potential;
  • Selection of industrially valuable microbial strains (mutant, fusant and transformant) of different taxonomic groups, actively producing different enzymes and low-molecular-weight metabolites (citric acid, amino acids, etc.) and enzymes (amylases, cellulases, xylanases, proteases, laccase, Mn-dependent peroxidase, etc);
  • Biological control of plant bacteriosis;
  • Creation of plant preparation for protection of organisms from the action of radiation;
  • Investigation of plants and microorganisms ability to absorb and enzymatically degrade organic pollutants of different structure. Revelation of oxidative enzymes (monooxygenases, peroxidases, polyphenoloxidases) in different kind of plants.

Valuable Technology Offerings

  • Biotechnology of plant origin natural colorants (brown, yellow, red) production;
  • Highly active natural antioxidant preparations from the Caucasus endemic vegetation;
  • Elaboration of quantitatively new ecobiotechnologies for the remediation and long term protection of environment from organic toxicants;
  • Strains of microorganisms, including extremophiles, of different taxonomic groups actively synthesizing enzymes (hydrolases, oxidases), low molecular weight compounds and secondary metabolites;
  • Biological control of tomato bacterial spot based on bacteriophage.

Scientific Cooperation and Technology Transfer

  • INAGROSA, Spain;
  • SUDCHEMIE, Germany;
  • Universities of USA, Canada, EU, Japan and Korea.
