Environmental and Evolutionary Microbiology
My primary interest is the environment, the quality of our living resources and the ways that bacteria can help to manage and degrade human wastes and restore environmental health. Consequently, I am very interested in genetic adaptation processes in bacteria, the mechanisms by which they deal with toxic substances, how they react to pollution in general and how we can apply microbial processes in a useful way (like bacterial bioreporters, bioremediation, microbiome engineering).
Welcome to Helena
January 26 2021
We are very happy to welcome Helena Todorov as new postdoc in the group. Helena will be working on recognition of cell images in microbial communities.
Congratulations to Diogo for passing his PhD exam
January 26 2021
Congratulations to Diogo, for successfully passing his PhD exam last Friday January 22! An excellent finish of his research on new RbsB variants as possible sensory proteins in bacterial bioreporters. All the best for your future career, Diogo!
Pseudomonas nitroreducens genome
September 07 2020
Congratulations to Nico, Vladimir, Lenka and Claire, for their new publication on the genome of Pseudomonas nitroreducens, the first bacterium to degrade 2-hydroxybiphenyl! In contrast to previous reports, we find that the P. nitroreducens genome has three replicons and two new exciting ICEs.

Congratulations to Birge, Noushin and Ambrin on their newest publication on the concept to use trained algorithms to recognize bacterial cell types in known and unknown communities from multiparametric flow cytometry data! Brilliant!
