Schlimpert Lab    Streptomyces cell biology

Dept. of Molecular Microbiology    John Innes Centre

Welcome to the Schlimpert Lab - we study the molecular mechanisms that spatially and temporally control cell division and cellular organisation in bacteria. We are particularly interested in every aspect of the biology of the filamentous antibiotic producing bacteria Streptomyces.

                                                    The lab in action...

 

 

 

​​Our research focuses on:

  • Cell division and sporulation

  • Regulation of multicellular development in bacteria

  • Cell differentiation

We use a combination of cell biology, molecular genetics, biochemistry, and global 'omics approaches to investigate how these fascinating bacteria can grow as multicellular organisms and divide into unicellular spores.

 

​Our lab is located in Norwich, a beautiful and most complete medieval city in the UK. We are part of the Department of Molecular Microbiology at the John Innes Centre (JIC), an international institute for plant and microbiology research.
