The research in the lab is focused on understanding the structure and function of the membrane supercomplexes from the photosynthetic machinery in different photosynthetic organisms. Moreover, we pursue the elucidation of the biogenesis and assembly of these intricate biological machines. To this end, we use cyanobacteria as a photosynthetic model organism and employ different methods such as molecular biology, biochemistry and structural biology.
