Overview: Departments of Biogeochemistry, of Ecophysiology, of Organismic Interactions, and of Systems and Synthetic Microbiology

Departments

The Department of Biogeochemistry examines the role of soil microorganisms in carbon and nitrogen cycling, particularly in chemically well-defined processes, e.g., the production and consumption of methane, the oxidation of ammonia, or denitrification. The department is headed by Prof. Dr. Ralf Conrad.

Research in the department focuses on understanding how intracellular signalling networks are wired to allow bacteria to adapt and differentiate in response to changes in the environment or in response to self-generated signals. The department is headed by Prof. Lotte Søgaard-Andersen.

Research in the Department of Organismic Interactions is focused on the biology of phytopathogenic fungi and in particular the mechanisms that underlie morphological differentiation and communication of these fungi with their plant hosts. The department is headed by Prof. Dr. Regine Kahmann.

Research in the Department of Systems and Synthetic Microbiology aims to elucidate general principles of evolutionary optimization of cellular networks and implement these principles in the design of novel networks in microorganisms. The Department is headed by Prof. Dr. Victor Sourjik.

Research in the Department of Biochemistry and Synthetic Metabolism centers on the discovery and design of novel enzymes and metabolic pathways, as well as their transplantation and evolution in natural and artificial cells (e.g., for the sustainable conversion of the greenhouse gas CO<sub>2</sub> with artificial photosynthesis). The Department is headed by Tobias J. Erb.
