Description of the group
BIOS is an SME distributing fungal peroxidases and phenoloxidases for biotechnological applications, research and development.It was founded in 1998 by scientists who wanted to share their proven utilities and experience with the life science community. The company is located in the “High-tech valley” of the traditional university town of Jena in Germany. The company is integrated in a consortium of 3 companies (with more than 20 academics) with several business areas and product fields. Enzymes are produced by fermentation of highly selective fungi and purchased as bulk or partly purified biocatalysts. Applications of ligninolytic enzymes and fungi are oxidative syntheses, degradability tests, modification of natural and synthetic materials, waste treatment in the textile and pulp-paper industry, colouring processes, bioremediation (e.g. of organo-arsenical warfare agents and explosives), oxidative degradation and bleaching processes and nutritional modification of animal feed.

Main role in INDOX
BIOS will extend the product portfolio and provide oxidoreductases e.g. peroxidases, peroxygenases and laccases in several purities and immobilization stages. Together with TUD-IHIZ, K. Scheibner first described peroxygenases and will develop during INDOX very specific production and isolation strategies. Its contribution to INDOX will focus on peroxygenase isolation, biochemical description, homolog/induced expression, production, respectively sustainable application.

Angel T. Martínez is Research Professor of CSIC at the group of Biotechnology for Lignocellulosic Biomass of CIB. He is member of ACS, ASM and TAPPI, with around 250 publications mainly related to oxidoreductases and microbial biotechnology.

His experience is supported by participation in more than 55 national and international research projects, in most of them as head researcher. Regarding EC Framework Programmes, he has coordinated projects of Industrial Biotechnology from FP3 to FP7, such as PEROXICATS (KBBE-2010-4-265397), BIORENEW (NMP2-CT-2006-026456), PELAS (QLK3-1999-00590), PITCH (QLK5-1999-01357) and AIR2 (CT93-1219).
