Laboratory for Molecular Genetics

In the Laboratory for Molecular Genetics we are investigating the basis of molecular genetics and evolution using primarily Streptomyces bacteria, sponges, and cave animals.

Laboratory for Molecular Genetics

Three research groups in the Laboratory for Molecular Genetics (LMG) are studying specific evolutionarily conserved aspects of biology of the complex Streptomyces bacteria, sponges – simple ancient animals with complex genomes, and the molecular basis of adaptations in cave animals.

Main research areas within the Laboratory are:

1) posttranslational modification ADP-ribosylation in Streptomyces bacteria and its impact on metabolism, with a special focus on antibiotic production

2) studying evolutionary conserved sponge genes/proteins with an emphasis on the homologs related to human diseases, especially cancer

3) molecular basis of adaptations to novel environments using cave animals as a model
