More information about Marnix Medema

Bacteria, fungi and plants produce large numbers of small molecules, which mediate key interactions between these organisms at the molecular level, and are responsible for many important microbiome-associated phenotypes. Many of these molecules are also applied as antibiotics, chemotherapeutics, and crop protection agents. Marnix Medema and his research group in Wageningen develop and apply computational tools to study the functional diversity of such molecules based on large-scale (meta)genomic, transcriptomic and metabolomic data.
