My research group focusses on the structure and function of the bacterial cell surface.
Our work is typically comparative – we do not work on a single pathogenic “pet” organism, but instead compare related surface proteins from different species, studying their similarities and subtle differences. Our work is also interdisciplinary – we use methods from bioinformatics, structural biology and biophysics on top of classical methods from microbiology, molecular biology and biochemistry. For details, please see the group pages of the Linke lab.
