The ultimate aim of the Blank lab (Applied Microbiology) is to use microbes to the benefit of environment, society and economy. By studying the metabolism of bacteria and fungi we aim to optimize and control a wide array of applications, ranging from the production of cleaner detergents to the spoilage of bio diesel.
