In the Department of Molecular Microbiology we study the basic bacterial

cell biology processes:

  • chromosome replication and the regulation of this process,
  • the influence of chromosome topology on replication,
  • regulation of genes expression, including those involved in secondary metabolites (antibiotics) production,
  • chromosome segregation and its coordination with cell division and other cell cycle processes,
  • chromosome organisation during bacterial cell cycle
