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
  • Bioinformatics
