Biotechnology is a collection of industrial methods that use living organisms, cells, tissues, products of their metabolism and biological processes for the production of valuable products for the national economy.

Specialty “Industrial Biotechnology” includes the following areas:

  1. food biotechnology – technology of baking products, sour-milk products, food yeast, products of alcoholic fermentation (alcohol, wine, beer, kvass);
  2. technology of production of edible mushrooms (gloves, mushrooms, mushrooms) and protein-vitamin preparations for livestock breeding;
  3. technology of enzyme preparations;
  4. biosynthesis and allocation of valuable biologically active substances and preparations (vitamins, proteins, organic acids, food additives, growth regulators, probiotics);
  5. technology of bioconversion of organic substances and plant raw materials (vermiotechnology, production of nutritious substrates, phytohormones, bio fertilizers, plant protection products);
  6. technology of processing agricultural and industrial wastes (production of feed yeast);
  7. bioenergy (biogas production);
  8. eco-biotechnology (sewage treatment, biofiltration, biodegradation of pesticides, harmful xenobiotics);
  9. selection, genetics of microorganisms, plants and animals;
  10. cellular engineering and molecular biology (microclonification of plants, obtaining culture of isolated cells, designing genetically modified organisms).
