LOEWE Center for
Insect Biotechnology
& Bioresources


Prof. Dr. Andreas Vilcinskas

“Insects are the most successful organisms on earth in terms of their diversity and adaptability. I am convinced that the biodiversity among insect species is also mirrored at the molecular level. What this means for us is that insects represent a vast and diverse resource of active substances and we should now focus our work on the discovery and characterization of these new substances and their sustainable use for the benefit of humanity.“

What is yellow biotechnology?

Yellow biotechnology (insect biotechnology) is the use of biotechnology to develop useful applications for whole insects as well as their organs, cells, molecules and symbiotic microbes, in the fields of medicine (red biotechnology), plant protection (green biotechnology) and industry (white biotechnology). The term yellow biotechnology was chosen because it is reminiscent of the yellow color of insect hemolymph, which has thus far yielded a number of useful and valuable chemicals, proteins and microbes.
