Welcome to the Department of Microbiology

Our research has a strong basis in the isolation, characterization and commercialization of a wide spectrum of bacteria, archae, yeasts and filamentous fungi as well as their metabolites. We also have research directed towards an increased understanding about microbial complexity and its function in different environments (soil, gut, biorectors etc) and in response to different treatments. 


We are part of the BioCenter at SLU in Uppsala.

Research

Our microbial research spans a broad range of biotechnical applications, such as production of biofuels, biopreservation, food fermentations, microbial feed production for aquaculture, biological control, probiotics, novel antibiotics, degradation of pollutants and enzyme discovery. In this work we have also competence in regard to formulation as well as safety assessment and regulations. Or work is often performed in collaboration with industrial partners.
