Max Planck Institute for Terrestrial Microbiology, Marburg
The group of Victor Sourjik at MPI-TM has expertise in experimental and theoretical analysis of signaling and cell biology in bacteria. The group uses quantitative fluorescence-based experiments and computational modeling to investigate sensitivity and robustness of cellular networks as well as self-assembly and partitioning of macromolecular complexes.
