Biochemistry and molecular biology

Biochemistry, sometimes called biological chemistry, is the study of chemical processes within and relating to living organisms. Molecular biology concerns the molecular basis of biological activity between the various systems of a cell, including the interactions between DNA, RNA and proteins and their biosynthesis, as well as the regulation of these interactions.

Ongoing biogas projects

Our goal is to generate knowledge that allows a controlled manangement of the microbiological biogas process. We aim to reach high effectivity, stability and biogas production in constructed reactors, as well as a high digestate quality. In natural ...

Microbiology of the biogas process

Microbiology of the biogas process

Biogas is produced through degradation of organic material in complex microbial processes. We aim to find solutions for optimised gas production with higher yields and improved process stability. This occurs both in natural systems and during controlled ...


Solution to plant breeding barrier coming closer

Pollen in anthers. Photo: Germán Martínez A major obstacle for plant breeders around the world is that the endosperm does not develop normally in seeds from crosses of plants that differ in chromosome number. Claudia Köhler"s lab at SLU has investigated ...
