Eukaryotic Gene Regulation
My research group focuses on understanding the evolution, genetics and molecular biology of industrial yeasts, specifically the lager yeasts Saccharomyces pastorianus. We use adaptive evolution, synthetic biology and metabolic engineering approaches to expand the physiological and metabolicproperties of yeasts, to improve the fermentation process, generate novel taste profiles in beer and enable the single celled microorganism to carry out new tasks such as making bioethanol from biomass.
