Description

The biochemistry group led by Prof. Silvan Scheller brings chemical processes that evolved in nature to the laboratory for industrial applications.

The group's research themes focus on biocatalytic transformations that occur in nature but that are currently not possible in classical chemistry. In order to utilize such new metabolisms and enzymes, we first need to understand them in detail. For this reason, his research group carries out fundamental research in microbial physiology and mechanistic enzymology.
