Institute of Microbial Cell Biology

Our international research group was established in summer 2014 at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf. The aim of our research is to gain insight into the molecular mechanisms that underlie the evolution of a eukaryotic organelle from an endosymbiotic bacterium. For this purpose, we use the photosynthetic amoeba Paulinella chromatophora and the symbiont-harboring trypanosomatid Angomonas deanei as model systems.
