Regulated intracellular protein degradation to counter disease New
N2-fixation in a unique marine bacterium New
Rhodopseudomonas palustris is one of the most versatile bacteria that can be found in nature. This bacterium can use light and inorganic/organic compounds, fixing CO2 and N2. How N2 fixation is regulated by light, carbon, and oxyg
Bacteria fixing N2 in the sea: microbiology, molecular biology and marine biology New
N2 (dinitrogen) fixation by prokaryotic microorganisms represents a major external source of nitrogen to the ocean. Recent work has shown that many heterotrophic bacteria are important in this process, but many unknowns remain abo
Bacterial diversity and function in marine waters - molecular microbiology projects New
Many options available for an exciting project related to our ongoing research on diversity, composition and functionality of bacteria in the marine water column.
Discovery of bacterial defense systems
The identification and functional characterization of new defense systems is crucial to understand gene flow across microbiomes.
Interpretation of Parabasalid DNA reads in pig facael samples as detected by metabarcoding

The role of the biofilm matrix in the productivity and protection of bacterial communities
When biofilms consist of multiple interacting species, community-intrinsic properties emerge. Researching how these community-based bacteria orchestrate their behavior has revolutionized the field of microbiology.
Intrinsically disordered proteins - ensembles, interactions and function New
Projects are available both at the BSc and MSc level and for ERASMUS students with a relevant biophysical background to study structure, interactions and function of IDPs
