The division of Systems and Synthetic Biology is part of the new Department of Biology and Biological Engineering.

Systems and Synthetic Biology is headed by Professor Jens Nielsen and is composed of several labs directed by faculty members at the department. The lab and computational facilities are shared among all members of Systems and Synthetic Biology. The division is very international with researchers from more than 30 countries and we have as a key objective to support young reseachers in their careers. We are participants in several large research centers and in many international projects funded by the EU and other funding agencies. 

Engqvist Lab     Hohmann Lab  
Our research focuses on bioinformatics and experimental high-throughput biochemical characterization of metabolic enzymes.   We are interested in understanding and using the dynamic behavior of signal transduction pathways.
Larsson Lab     Mijakovic Lab  
Our lab is focused on understanding the physiology and metabolic regulation in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae and to apply this knowledge in various metabolic engineering projects.   We work on signaling and regulation in bacterial cells, focusing in particular on regulatory phenomena based on protein phosphorylation.
Nielsen Lab     Petranovic Lab  
Our research focus is on systems biology of metabolism. The yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae is our key organism for experimental research.   We are combining methods of molecular and cell biology, biochemistry, bioinformatics and systems biology with the scope to study how cells regulate aging and death pathways.
Zelezniak Lab        
We apply best practices of computational biology together with machine learning to understand the behavior of metabolic networks at single and multispecies levels.
