Ubiquitin is a highly conserved protein across all eukaryotes. Its attachment to other proteins modifies their fate within the cell. The Trujillo and Dissmeyer labs aim to uncover the molecular mechanisms that regulate ubiquitination and its function in life of a cell.

Establishing enzymes in industrial processes is steadily progressing. However, the enzyme ‘toolbox’ shows only few efficient biocatalysts for C-C-bond forming reactions. The Weissenborn group therefore focusses on developing non-natural enzyme reactions to close this gap. The novel enzyme reactions of interest are inspired by organic chemistry and will be further developed and optimised by ‘directed evolution’.
