Major Biochemistry & Microbiology

Banner_bm.jpg

Spokesperson: Prof. Dr. Bettina WarscheidProf. Dr. Matthias Boll

The topics of the Major Biochemistry & Microbiology comprise special metabolic properties of microorganisms, the physiology and ecology of prokaryotes, growth and metabolism of the eukaryotic model organism Saccharomyces cerevisiae (baker’s yeast) as well as the function and regulation of protein modifications and -interactions.

In Microbiology, research topics comprise the isolation and characterization of bacteria with novel metabolic capacities, the degradation of pollutants/xenobiotics, the biotechnological use of bacterial enzymes as biocatalysts, CO2-fixation, biofilm formation or pathogenicity mechanisms. The scope of Biochemistry is to address current question regarding the biogenesis and biochemistry of organelles with a focus on pathogenic processes, the regulation of essential cellular metabolic pathways and protein import routes as well as the characterization of dynamic protein-protein interactions and functional protein complexes.
