Scientific Focus

  • The independent Research Unit Analytical BioGeoChemistry (BGC) investigates chemical interactions at interfaces in life  sciences. Our mission is a better understanding of chemical processes in microbial ecosystems in nutrition, health and environment to identify small molecular keyplayers, their structure and modulating functions. BGC operates an (ultra)high resolution analytical platform involving (µ)separation, spectroscopy, spectrometry and mathematical methods, to describe and visualize organic structural diversity with space and time resolution in the fields of metabolomics and metallomics.
