We are a group of microbiologists with diverse interests in biochemistry, molecular biology, omics-based approaches, bioinformatics and chemical biology. The main theme of our research is antibiotics and pathogen evolution, but we also work on other aspects of microbiology including genome/metabolic engineering and synthetic biology.
