Environmental Molecular Microbiology Group
Leader: Prof. Dr. Habil. Banciu Horia
- Investigating the diversity and ecological roles of microbial communities in hypersaline lakes through conventional and molecular microbiology approaches
- Deciphering the molecular mechanisms underlying the adaptation of halophilic microorganisms to the stress induced by salts and metals;
- Investigation of extreme environments (saline aquatic ecosystems, cave ecosystems) for microorganisms with metabolic capacity with application potential
- Exploring the potential of halophilic microorganisms to produce bioplastic.
