MICROBIAL MOLECULAR GENETICS  

The unit of Microbial molecular genetics includes 4 group leaders with long-standing expertise in molecular microbiology. Their main research topics are gene expression regulation in Gram-negative bacteria, the identification and development of novel antimicrobial agents, and the virulence mechanisms of pathogenic bacteria.
