We are interested in a broad range of topics in quantitative microbiology, using bacteria and microbial eukaryotes as model systems. Our main focus is on the quantitative analysis of the organization and molecular functions of cellular networks in microorganisms. We use quantitative fluorescence microscopy and single-cell techniques to investigate the ability of these networks to sense and integrate multiple environmental and internal stimuli. Within M4C, we are especially interested in the mechanisms that allow genetic and metabolic networks of environmentally relevant microorganisms to adjust their function to changing environmental conditions by gene regulation and by slower evolutionary adaptation. 

Research Focus:

Microbes as Responders; Microbes providing Solutions
