Institute of Microbiology

The Institute of Microbiology investigates different microbial interactions and consists of five chairs and the asso­ciated Jena Microbial Resource Collection (JMRC). Research covers aerobic/anaerobic bacteria and fungi and thus is central to JSMC, with the chair for Applied and Ecological Microbiology focusing on the energy metabolisms of anaerobic microorganisms with emphasis on dehalorespiration and corrinoid-dependent reactions; General Microbiology and Microbial Genetics on developmental programs and molecular signals in sexual and parasitic interactions between zygomycete partners; Microbial Communication on sexual development in basidiomycete fungi, ectomycorrhizal symbiosis and heavy metal resistance of streptomycetes; Microbiology and Molecular Biology on natural products, the pathobiology of Aspergillus fumigatus and the analysis of the communication of this pathogenic fungus with the human host. A fifth chair entitled Microbial Metabolic Interactions is currently being filled.
