Universities of Hasselt and Antwerp will validate the technology from start-up BioStrand
The start-up BioStrand receives 235,000 euros in grants from the Flemish government. The investment enables BioStrand, which already raised 2 million euros in June, to evaluate the performance of its technology for genetic research in collaboration with the universities of Hasselt and Antwerp. This scientific validation is the final step for BioStrand to launch its genetic search engine for research and development departments of companies and universities all over the world. “With the extra resources that we invest in BioStrand from Flanders, Belgium, the company can advance internationally and will put Flanders even more in the spotlight,” says Hilde Crevits, Flemish Minister of Economy and Innovation.
