Our Research Program spans different topics of chemistry and synthetic biology. Current projects are concerned with the creation of novel functions at the interface of proteins and nucleic acids. Using principles of synthetic biology, we study and re-engineer key complexes involved in the recognition and processing of the genetic code. This provides access to tailored biomolecular systems with implications for therapy, diagnostics and basic biological research.
