Lab Ehrenreich

We work on genetics and physiology of biotechnological relevant bacteria.

Our focus is on energy metabolism of Firmicutes such as several Clostridia and Bacilli as well as on the molecular biology of Acetic Acid Bacteria

Our lab has a very good expertise in establishing molecular biological methods for strains of bacteria that can be employed in biotechnology. We then work on those organisms by integrating data from genomics, functional genomics, microbial physiology, molecular biology, biochemistry and bioinformatics to analyze characteristics of those strains relevant for biotechnology and to construct strains with improved properties.
