Organization
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 and faculty. Each lab has a leader  who is responsible for directing particular research themes. The lab and computational facilities are shared among all members of Systems and Synthetic Biology.

Systems and Synthetic Biology has a central role in LifeScience@Chalmers, which is one of eight Areas of Advance at Chalmers University of Technology. The director of Life Science Engineering Area of Advance is Professor Ivan Mijakovic.
 
 
Hohmann Lab     Larsson Lab  
We are interested in understanding and using the dynamic behavior of signal transduction pathways.   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.
         
Mijakovic Lab     Nielsen Lab  
We work on signaling and regulation in bacterial cells, focusing in particular on regulatory phenomena based on protein phosphorylation.   Our research focus is on systems biology of metabolism. The yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae is our key organism for experimental research.
         
Petranovic Lab     Engqvist Lab  
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.   Our research focuses on bioinformatics and experimental high-throughput biochemical characterization of metabolic enzymes.
