Institute of Microbial Cell Biology

Our group explores the molecular mechanisms that underlie the symbiotic interaction of eukaryotes with bacterial endosymbionts and the rules guiding the transformation of bacterial endosymbionts into genetically integrated organelles. For this purpose, we use the photosynthetic amoeba Paulinella chromatophora and the symbiont-harboring trypanosomatid Angomonas deanei as model systems.
