The Molecular Genetics group focuses on the molecular biology, physiology, genetics, cell biology and functional genomics of AT-rich Gram-positive bacteria of industrial and health interest.
The vision is to fully understand the molecular mechanisms underlying life and adaptation of our model bacteria to changing environments.
Our mission is to perform top science using advanced genetics, genomics and single cell analytical tools to address fundamental and applied research questions.
Objectives: Bacillus subtilis is studied as a potential cell factory for enzyme and vaccine production as well as for gaining basic insights in differentiation processes, like sporulation and competence development. Lactococcus lactis is investigated as model system for various biotechnological applications, and for basic research on gene regulation. Recently, single cell analyses and ncRNAs work has been implemented. The human pathogen Streptococcus pneumonia is studied with respect to pathogenesis and virulence. Bacilli from soil are studied for plant biocontrol purposes and antimicrobial properties
