Our new paper on design and assembly of DNA sequence libraries is out! It paves the way for large scale synthetic chromosome assemblies. You can read it here.
Our fresh paper on the DNA replication in engineered E. coli with additional replication origins is out! It is part of the special issue "Synthetic biology in Europe. You can read it here.
Our special issue on Synthetic Biology is out in Current Opinion in Chemical Biology! The two editors: Gert Bange and Torsten Waldminghaus. Thanks to all contributors! You can read the overview here.
Getting a bear mug as thank-you gift for a talk at the Bioloquium at the TU Munich. Thanks to all the great students in Freising!
If you want to look at the distribution of your favorite DNA motif on chromosomes you should use our new web tool DistAMo. You can read the paper here.
Our review on synthetic chromosomes is out! It outlines the current state of research and presents some of our ideas. You can read it here.
Our review on chromosome domains is out! Its part of a special issue on chromosome segregation. You can read it here.
The new promotion brochure about science in Marburg highlights our research. Read more here (in German).
Welcome to Patrick Sobetzko! He is SYNMIKRO-Postdoc for Bioinformatics and associated with the Waldminghaus group.
Read some comments Torsten made in an interview about the exciting yeast 2.0 project of Jef Boeke and friends in this article.
Torsten joint the synthetic biology community at the International Symposium on Synthetic Biology in Heidelberg and gave a talk on "Synthetic Secondary Chromosomes in Escherichia coli"
Franziska Kemter joins the lab for her Master Thesis.
She will try to find out more about how DNA replication based on oriII of V. cholerae works in E. coli
This year lab trip was canoing on the river Lahn. The weather was good and the water was wet.
