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.

!New Paper! In this article, we review state-of-the-art methods for high-throughput sequence-function mapping in synthetic biology. Such methods have an enormous potential to boost our capabilities in the engineering of synthetic (micro-)biological system, as they deliver big data for advanced modelling approaches and in silico design tools.  The open access publication available here!

!New Paper! In this study, we built an artificial,  ruthenium enzyme that catalyzes carbon-carbon coupling in an atroposelective manner.  Congratulations to Tobias and our collaborators from the Ward and Sparr groups (Uni Basel). Here you can find the open access publication!

Great news! The SynMiBi Lab will receive generous funding via an ERC Starting Grant from the European Commission! The project BiosenSAI will commence in 2024 and chart new grounds in the engineering and design of novel biosensors for various biotech applications. !Many thanks to the team! More info can be found here.
