"Quantification of carbon and electron fluxes in the phototroph cyanobacterium Synechocystis PCC6803 "

Research Interests

    In my work at the SOMA department, I investigate cellular energy and carbon turnover efficiencies in Synechocystis PCC6803 for the creation of a quantitative metabolic network model. My methods include metabolomics and proteomics by mass spectrometry, isotopic tracer strategies, the development of extraction and workup routines as well as computational approaches.
