Microbiology is the study of microscopic organisms. Microbiology encompasses numerous sub-disciplines including virology, mycology, parasitology, and bacteriology.
We collaborate with several organisations to find solutions for optimised biogas production with higher yields and improved process stability. Our collaboration partners Universities och Institutes
Stress granules are transient membraneless organelles which are formed in eukaryotic cells in response to stress. They are composed of messenger ribonucleoprotein complexes, have core-shell
Autophagy is a major catabolic process in eukaryotes that involves the sequestration of cytoplasmic contents into double membraned vesicles known as autophagosomes, which are then transported to the
Proteases cleave polypeptide chains and, in this way, modulate activity of target proteins and downstream pathways. Our current efforts are to unravel structure-function relationships of metacaspases
The Plant Catabolism Laboratory
We are interested in the mechanisms and functions of catabolic processes during development, aging and stress response at the molecular, cellular and organismal levels. Our experimental models span

Oleaginous yeasts can convert carbohydrates into fatty acids at the highest known specific rates and the fatty acid content can exceed half of the total biomass in the cell. Carbohydrates derived
Exploring the Ins and Outs of Yeast Metabolism
The word “yeast” describes diverse groups of fungi that spend all or at least part of their life cycle as single cells. The yeast most familiar to many of us is the species Saccharomyces cerevisiae,
In this project we investigate the application of yeasts for biopreservation of moist biomass. This technology has been used for a long time for an energy saving storage of animal feed biomass. In
Non-conventional yeasts (i.e. all known yeast species except Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Candida albicans and Schizosaccharomyces pombe) are a currently under-utilised resource with a great academic
The world’s population will increase by 50% to 9 billion in 2050, and coupled with changing consumption patterns in developing countries, our agricultural systems will need to produce 70% more food.
