1.Streptomyces as host for heterologous protein production. It has aldready proven that Streptomyces is a good choice for heterologous protein production and can be an invaluable host for eukaryotic proteins. Some of these heterologous proteins are secreted as biologically active compounds in commercially significant yield using expression/secretion signals we have isolated (EP0851931A), they can easily be purified and have the same ...

Molecular Biotechnology of Plants and Micro-organisms
The main fundamental research questions in the MBPM division are related to the elucidation of environmental-induced signal transduction pathways in yeast, pathogenic fungi and plants and how these pathways affect phenotypes such as growth, development (plants), immune priming, stress tolerance, fermentation capacity, morphogenesis and virulence. The fungal groups also use yeast as ...

Periodontology & Oral Microbiology KU Leuven
The department of Periodontology conducts both clinical as well as more fundamental research. The clinical projects concentrate on an optimization of non-surgical periodontal therapy, diagnostics in Periodontology, planning and outcome of oral implants, diagnosis and treatment of halitosis. In 1996 the department created the Research Group for Microbial Adhesion. This new group covers research within a broad field of oral microbiology ...
