Abstract:
The Center for Protein Engineering (Centre d’Ingéniérie des Protéines, CIP) is a multidisciplinary research Center of the University of Liège, Belgium. The Center provides complementary approaches for the analysis of structure and function relationships of proteins. Nine closely interacting research teams constitute the framework of the Centre offering cutting-edge expertise, from isolated proteins to integrated cellular networks, with special reference to antibiotic resistance. Furthermore, CIP also manages two technological platforms for protein expression, purification and analysis, which are both accessible to academic and commercial partners.

The marine research is mainly conducted in two divisions: Biochemistry of Extremophiles and Cyanobacterial Diversity, Phylogeny and Biogeography (e.g. Planktonic cyanobacteria forming toxic blooms in surface waters and Biogeography of polar cyanobacteria (Antarctic and Arctic)).
