Research within the master Molecular Biology and Biotechnology is in the field of
biomolecular sciences, with a strong focus on proteins. The aim is to fully
understand regulation, the structure and dynamics of proteins in relation to their
function and activity in living cells and to obtain an understanding of the
fundamental properties of proteins and microorganisms that are relevant for
application in health and bio(nano)-technology. Through Synthetic Biology, this
fundamental knowledge is combined with that of other disciplines to design and
develop novel functional biological and semi-artificial systems. The research is
primarily fundamental and curiosity-driven; it is often multidisciplinary and
collaborative with specialization in the following key areas:
• Systems biology of microorganisms
• Molecular cell biology
• Membrane proteins
• Structure-function relationship of proteins
• Microbial biotechnology and biocatalysis
• Chemical and synthetic biology
