Laboratory Automation Platform


We are establishing a state-of-the-art robotic platform for library handling, automated screening assays and combinatorial experiments in synthetic biology.





  • molecular cloning, transformation, conjugation
  • DNA assembly
  • RNAi
  • enzymatic assays
  • split ubiquitin 2-hybrid screens
  • replication and rearraying of libraries
  • automated microscopy

SYNMIKRO Young Researchers Groups

Almost all scientific members of SYNMIKRO are actively involved in DFG’s Collaborative Research Centers (Sonderforschungsbereiche), Research Training Groups (Graduiertenkollegs), or other Cooperative Research projects. Alongside performing adventurous experiments, and reporting excellent science, SYNMIKRO substantially promotes potential Young Research Group Leaders by constantly keeping its doors open to welcome and support Young Researchers planning to set up an Independent Research Group.
