Welcome to the homepage of the LOEWE center for synthetic microbiology (SYNMIKRO)
In 2010, the Philipps-Universität Marburg and the Max Planck Institute for Terrestrial Microbiology established the LOEWE Center for Synthetic Microbiology (SYNMIKRO). Research at the center follows a two-pronged approach - building to understand, and understanding to build - to gain insights into the basic principles of microbial life and to provide the fundamental knowledge and tools needed to tap the potential of microorganisms as cell factories or sensor/reporter systems. With over 100 scientists in more than 30 groups, SYNMIKRO is one of the largest centers worldwide in synthetic-microbiological research.
