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: protein secretion, C- and N- metabolism, gene regulation, stress responses, pathogens, virulence factors, metal ion homeostasis, Gram positive bacteria (Bacillus, Lactococcus, Streptococcus), competence, sporulation, germination, antimicrobial peptides, phenotypic heterogeneity, bistability
Group leader Molecular Genetics
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.

I am a PhD student of the microbiology department at the Ludwig-Maximilians Universität München. I work at the chair of Prof. Kirsten Jung. The topic of our workpackage deals with "K+ homeostasis in Escherichia coli". In special I'm working on the sensor kinase KdpD that controls together with the response regulator KdpE the expression of the high-affinity K+ uptake system KdpFABC. The yet not fully understood molecular mechanism of stimulus perception and signal transduction is of particular
Roles: Project Coordinator
The Veening lab is interested in phenotypic bi-stability in Streptococcus pneumoniae and its importance in virulence of this human pathogen.
