Welcome to the homepage of the LOEWE center for synthetic microbiology (SYNMIKRO)
Within the LOEWE center for synthetic microbiology (SYNMIKRO), more than 100 scientists from Philipps-Universität Marburg and the Max Planck Institute for Terrestrial Microbiology in Marburg, working in more than 100 groups, explore the foundations of synthetic microbiology. Promoted by the excellence program of the state of Hessen, the center was founded in 2010. Today, SYNMIKRO is one of the largest centers worldwide in synthetic-microbiological research.
The SYNMIKRO Head Offices is moving into new rooms on November 19th, 2014.
You'll find us on the 5th floor of the "Merhzweckgebäude" (Room 05 C 02 - 05 C 07). The contact data of the staff members like phone numbers or e-mail addresses don't change.

October 29, 2014 | After a successful performance in 2013 a Marburg iGEM team again participates in the competition this year. The team 2014 consists of 11 bachelor and master students of the Philipps-University of Marburg, who come from the fields of biology, chemistry, physics and biomedicine. Like in 2013, the competition is supported by the LOEWE Center for Synthetic Microbiology (SYNMIKRO) and sponsors. Dr. Gert Bange and Prof. Michael Bölker (team leader) as well as doctoral and postdoctoral students of SYNMIKRO supervise the team that now faces the challenge of Giant Jamboree in Boston, MA (USA) from October 30th till November 3rd, 2014.
