Natural product biosynthesis: tools for polyketide and aminoglycoside engineering

Research focus

The focus of our research is the biosynthesis of natural products in actinomycetes. We are particularly interested in polyketide and aminoglycoside pathways and the development of molecular tools for their engineering in order to improve the product yields and generate new bioactive derivatives.
