Martin Pabst Group


The Microbial Proteomics Group develops novel mass spectrometric approaches and data processing pipelines to explore the remarkable diversity of microbes and their communities they live in.

Prokaryotes—the unseen majority on our planet—encompass an enormous metabolic and biochemical diversity. However, only a small fraction of this potential has been discovered and explored for their use in biotechnology and industry to date; for example, there is a growing demand for novel enzymes with high process performances to replace traditional chemistry, or to realize new bioactive compounds such as promising antimicrobials.

Our laboratory is equipped with micro- and nano-flow separation systems coupled to state-of-the-art high-resolution mass spectrometers (GC-MS and LC-Orbitrap-MS instruments).
