Professor in biotechnology at the Dept. Chemistry, Biotechnology and Food Science. I am heading "Laboratory of microbial gene technology and food microbiology" that consists of approximately 20 members (staff members, technicians,and students). During the last 20 years my research has been focused on lactica acid bacteria with a focus on bacteriocins of lactic acid bacteria.These studies have included purification and chemical and genetic characterization of such peptides followed by biosynthesis
