    Description

    This project will develop molecular tools for designing bacterial-based biocatalysts which combine the phenotypes of two or more individual strains with the defined physico-chemical properties of functional groups entered in a mineral matrix to which cells become attached. The main instrument to this end is the anchoring of different affibodies on the surface of the bacteria of interest, so that they acquire the ability to adhere physically to each other as well as to the natural or modified surface of two types of silicates. The special task of the DTU group is to monitor the in situ behavior of the organisms using the molecular tools developed in the Molecular Microbial Ecology group.
