Research focus

We want to contribute to the understanding of bacterial metabolism and are interested in expanding the biosynthetic capabilities of microorganisms for applied purposes. We focus on the engineering of Corynebacterium glutamicum for the sustainable production of value-added small molecules such as natural products, fine chemicals or pharmaceutical building blocks from biomass and other waste streams rich in carbon and energy. In addition, we are developing new molecular tools for the editing of bacterial genomes and the high-throughput screening of metabolite producing bacteria at the single cell level using biosensors and fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS).

Our laboratories are located at Forschungszentrum Jülich. Please visit our website: Institute of Bio- und Geosciences, IBG-1: Biotechnology, Group Synthetic Cell Factories
