POSITION I am an emeritus professor in Biochemistry at the University of Amsterdam (retired 2010).
RESEARCH My research focussed on the human chromatin in its natural environment, i.e. the nucleus of cultured living human cells. Aspects, such as the dynamic folding of the chromatin fiber inside the nucleus and local chemical modification of histones and DNA at genetic loci, are the physical and chemical basis for epigenetic regulation of gene expression. In my group we worked parallel on human ...

The Veening lab is interested in phenotypic bi-stability in Streptococcus pneumoniae and its importance in virulence of this human pathogen.
Martijn Bekker (1979) was born in Amstelveen (The Netherlands). He started his studies in biology in 1997 at the University of Amsterdam, and graduated in 2003 with specializations in molecular microbiology and in immunology. The internships during his undergraduate studies were carried out in the labs of Prof. dr. B. Oudega (VU, Amsterdam, The Netherlands) and Prof. dr. F. Heffron (OHSU, Portland, Oregon, USA). He continued with his graduate studies in 2003 in the Laboratory for Molecular Microbial ...

Head of the group of Molecular Enzyme Technology and Biochemistry (Faculty of Chemistry) at the University of Duisburg-Essen. My research interest is on archaeal physiology with a special focuss on the central carbohydrate metabolism of (hyper)thermophilic Archaea and its regulation. The aim is to gain a systems level understanding by the combination of modern highthrouput analyses with classical biochemistry and molecular biology. Archaea possess many novel enzymes and pathways and our aim is ...
