Welcome to the 
Synthetic Microbiology Lab.

Our Mission.

Rational Engineering of Synthetic Microbes for Sustainable Bioproduction

We develop experimental tools and computational models that allow us to better understand the intricate genetic makeup of bacteria. Further, we want to apply the generated tools and knowledge to engineer new synthetic bacteria capable to efficiently and safely produce value-added chemicals on the basis of renewable resources.
