Molecular & Genome Biology of Microbes; Membrane Biology & Protein Trafficking
We are interested in the mechanisms that especially bacterial cells use to transport biological macromolecules such as nucleic acid and protein across membrane barriers. We currently study three related systems, i. chromosome segregation at cell division barriers, ii. DNA import into cells, and iii. protein export.
