Member overview

Technische Universität Berlin / Institute of Chemistry / Focus Group "Protein Engineering“

Key figures / Profil

  • work on "Protein Engineering" based on the in vivo incorporation of non-canonical amino acids into proteins
  • objective: manipulate the protein translation machinery and, thus, the genetic code. This results in new possibilities to engineer and control cellular processes in a chemical way.
  • Long-term goals:
    • generation of synthetic cellular systems.
    • transfer of the enhanced spectrum of the non-canonical to commercial use

We offer

  • organic synthesis of amino acids
  • studies on model peptides
  • expression of target proteins in different host organisms
