High performance without oxygen
Bioelectrochemistry enables economically attractive microbial biofactories. In the future, the proteobacterium Shewanella oneidensis could be used in this way for acetoin production.
Making the rhizosphere fit for the future
Modern agricultural systems must be able to meet the challenges of climate change. In the rhizosphere properties of older crops, researchers are looking for solutions for coping with environmental stress and increasing yield security.
Cell factory for hot and acidic
The archaeon is to become a platform organism for biotechnology. The research project "HotAcidFACTORY" wants to create the basis for this.
Plant protection with microgels
Fewer pesticides for more plant protection - this is the goal of a German-Brazilian team researching antimicrobial peptides to protect citrus fruits from bacterial "cancer infestation".
Creating new microbial bio-factories
A new research project aims to examine bacteria that have so far been biotechnologically largely unnoted for their suitability for the bioindustry.
