Bio-inspired Systems

We use synthetic biology approaches to create microbial cell factories for production of enzymes, antimicrobial peptides, innovative materials (e.g. biopolymers) and chemical building blocks (e.g. carboxylic acids, terpenes) contributing to a resource-efficient and sustainable economy. Comprehensive methodologies for risk assessment of environmental and human exposure will be developed to fulfil regulatory demands for commercialisation.
