Welcome to the RTG 2341 Microbial Substrate Conversion


Microbes dominate our planet. This enormous success is reflected in the versatility in primary and secondary metabolism that allows the acclimation of microorganisms to various ecological niches. Many of the responsible enzymes and pathways are not only of fundamental interest for basic research, but also attractive for biotechnological and medical applications.

The Research Training Group “Microbial substrate conversion (MiCon)” aims at understanding the mechanistic principles of microbial metabolic processes at the molecular level. The enzymes and pathways under investigation are involved in the synthesis of small molecules like hydrogen, the biosynthesis, modification and degradation of lipids, and the production of secondary metabolites.

New series: What are you doing in the lab?
I Was Wondering Logo 2

In order to give interested visitors to our site a better look at what our students are researching in their laboratories, we here introduce a new series called "What are you doing in the lab?". Each month, a member of our research training group will introduce themself and explain what he or she is currently working on. Anna Lienkamp - a MiCon student from the very beginning of the programm - will kick off the series!
