We are interested in finding the way to control the electrochemistry of microorganisms, hence we study different aspects of this challenge.

Study of the communication between engineered microorganisms and electrodes:

Site specifically wired redox enzyme displayed on the surface of E. coli Site specifically wired redox enzyme displayed on the surface of E. coli

Study of biofuel production cascades:

Enzymatic cascade of reactions can help to achieve higher power densities Enzymatic cascade of reactions can help to achieve higher power densities.

Exploration of viable “wiring” strategies of microorganisms and enzymes:

Encapsulation of active microorganisms in a conductive support Encapsulation of active microorganisms in a conductive support

Study of the components of protein expression machinery:

The development of a system with high yields of proteins that contain unnatural amino acids in order to be able to engineer redox enzymes The development of a system with high yields of proteins that contain
unnatural amino acids in order to be able to engineer redox enzymes.
