I am a biochemist & bio-informatician working in phytobacteriology at the Plant Sciences Unit of ILVO, the Flanders Research Institute for Agricultural, Fisheries and Food Research. The focus is on genomics-based research and diagnostics for Plant Health.
My expertise is 'wet-lab' work (microbiology, sequencing, molecular biology, design & validation of diagnostics assays using qPCR/LAMP, automatisation) and 'dry-lab' work such as bio-informatics/data analysis (e.g. scripting analysis ...

My scientific interests revolve around functional genomics, systems biology and the development of algorithms and software for the analysis of high-throughput data (mainly, but not restricted to, Next Generation Sequencing) and its application to the relationship between genotype and phenotype, mainly oriented to personalized and precision medicine. I am especially interested in the study of disease mechanisms and drug action mechanisms, drug repositioning and the definition of mechanism-based ...
Expertise: Gram positive bacteria (Bacillus, Lactococcus, Streptococcus), competence, sporulation, germination, antimicrobial peptides, phenotypic heterogeneity, bistability, C- and N- metabolism, gene regulation, stress responses, pathogens, virulence factors, metal ion homeostasis, protein secretion
Group leader Molecular Genetics
I am assistant professor at the Laboratory of Microbiology and my interest is in the area of molecular microbiology. Research focuses on the analysis of the metabolism of anaerobic fermentative bacteria and archaea, especially with respect to biofuel production (hydrogen, butanol). Within SysMo our tasks concern the effect of butanol stress, using metabolomics and transcriptomics.

Optimisation of Bacillus subtilis for the secretion of heterologous proteins Therapeutic proteins (including those required for experimental purposes and clinical trials) are major products of biomanufacturing processes and considerable time and expense are expended to maximise the yield and quality of proteins produced in heterologous hosts. The production host of choice is the Gram-negative bacterium Escherichia coli for which many strains and expression systems have been developed. However, ...
I am final year PhD student in Prof Ian Booth's lab and a microbiologist by trade. I am interested in how enteric bacteria cope with stress and what systems they employ to increase their chances of survival, in particular upon methylglyoxal stress.
