Research of the Laboratory of Systems and Synthetic Biology

Our Mission is to contribute to the elucidation [from a Systems Biology perspective] of the mechanisms underlying basic cellular processes, evolution and interactions among microbes and between microbes and their environment (including the human host) and to translate this knowledge [from a Synthetic Biology perspective] into applications of biotechnological, medical and environmental interest.

Strategic Concept:

Develop and apply theoretical frameworks supporting (and relying on) experimental research towards the understanding of the various processes and hierarchies of cellular networks and circuitry.

Research Activities:

The Laboratory of Systems and Synthetic Biology addresses in an integrated way critical issues and novel biotechnological applications in the area Health & Food, Biobased Products and Environment.

We carry out research activities broadly along three major lines:
