About us

The Microbial Ecophysiology Lab. studies fundamental aspects of the biology and ecology of extreme acidophiles and their communities. For this purpose we use cutting edge technologies and a powerful combination of genomics and molecular biology tools. Through our research we aim to understand the structure and function of microbial communities in natural and industrial acidic environments and to dissect the roles of relevant microbes thriving in these econiches. Our applied goal is to contribute to rational and responsible biomining practices.
