Another Brick in the Wall: The role of the actinobacterial cell wall in antibiotic resistance, phylogeny and development
Streptomyces are multicellular, Gram-positive bacteria in the phylum of actinobacteria which produce a high amount of bioactive natural products of which the expression is tightly coordinated with the life cycle.
Growth and development of actinomycetes
We aim to provide new insights relating to the spectacular multi-cellular life cycle of streptomycetes and other actinobacteria.
Bacteria under stress can live without cell wall
Thread-like bacteria make cells that no longer have a cell wall under the influence of osmotic stress. A remarkable discovery, since the cell wall serves as a protection barrier for bacteria. It could also help to explain how pathogenic bacteria can hide in our body from our immune system. A team of…
Fungal Chitosans from Fermentation Mycelia for Plant Biostimulants (FunChi)
Our focus is to optimize the fungal cell wall to both increase chitin production and chitin extractability.
TARGETBIO: Transmission of Antimicrobial Resistance Genes and Engineered DNA from Transgenic Biosystems in Nature
This project aims to assess the risk of spread of antimicrobial resistance genes in the environment derived from currently used synthetic biology approaches in the field of drug discovery.
Quantum particles and bacteria without cell walls: KLEIN grant for Beenakker and Claessen
Are Weyl particles the ideal conductors? Do cells without a cell wall play a role in chronic Tuberculosis infections? Carlo Beenakker and Dennis Claessen want to answer these questions. They both received a KLEIN grant from the NWO. With these grants, NWO wants to stimulate innovative, fundamental r…
Lizah van der Aart makes glossy about PhD research
After four years of hard work, the time has finally come: your thesis is finished. But who of your family and friends will ever read it? Biologist Lizah van der Aart decided to make a magazine for layman. 'It was precisely the explanation of the difficult, fundamental parts that gave me good tools for…
