Research at the Section for Biomolecular Sciences
The areas of interest reach from protein synthesis and turnover over protein dynamics and design to enzymology and metabolic networks. The section has a firm base in molecular biology and biophysics. The section enjoys strong ties and close collaborations with other departments at the Faculty of Science at the University of Copenhagen.
The section is subdivided in four research groups and one center:
- Biomolecular regulation Group
- Protein Biology Group
- Protein Design and Enzymology Group
- Structural Biology and NMR Laboratory (SBiN-Lab)
- The Linderstrøm-Lang Center for Proein Science
Currently the section has about 100 members from the MSc level and up. See the full staff list here.
BMS Research Groups
How do bacteria survive?
A collaboration between the Svenningsen lab and scientists from the Niels Bohr Institute just published a beautiful study in PNAS explaining how bacteria survive virus (bacteriophage) infections by using the outermost layer of bacteria as a shield.
Atlas of Science
A recent publication from the Linderstrøm-Lang Centre hosted at the Section for Biomolecular Sciences has been selected for publication in Atlas of Science. The paper describes how short intrinsically disordered protein regions, socalled SLIMs, can mediate protein-protein interactions in plant stress response regulation.
