The Mass Spectrometry of Biomacromolecules (MSB) research programme focuses on four research themes that adhere to the study of molecular microbiology and to green life sciences. We study (i) the spore proteome of Bacilli and Clostridia, (ii) 3-D structures of protein complexes, (iii) multi-level control of gene expression regulation and (iv) isotope fractionation in plants and the geographical distribution of isotope ratio’s in horticulture products. MSB is developing advanced and innovative, mass spectrometry-based proteomics-technology that is designed for these research areas and that is widely applicable in the field of molecular and structural biology and plant biology. Here, we have long term collaborations with the SILS plant groups.

(i) The spore proteome of Bacilli and Clostridia

(ii) Novel tools for the experimental evaluation of models of the 3-D structure of protein complexes

(iii) Multi-level control of gene expression regulation

(iv) Isotope fractionation in plants and the geographical distribution of isotope ratio’s in horticulture products
