MPI für terrestrische Mikrobiologie, Marburg | Germany
Our lab interfaces biology and chemistry and centers on the discovery, function and engineering of novel CO2 converting enzymes and their use in engineered and artificial photosynthesis. We cross scales from the molecular mechanisms of (micro)biological CO2 fixation to their ecological relevance, and from understanding their natural evolution to developing new-to-nature solutions, such as the bottom-up design of synthetic chloroplasts and artificial cells.
