Focus of our work
We are developing flexible, microbial platforms for the conversion of renewable resources to hydrocarbon, drop-in biofuels. During our work we keep the cell's physiology in mind, thus while working in a strongly applied field, we are keen to gain insights into questions of basic research as well.
Techniques routinely applied
- Modern cloning methods: SLIC, SLiCE, GoldenGate, ...
- Manipulation of different hosts: E. coli, B. subtilis, Y. lipolytica
- Genome sequencing and analysis
