Welcome!

The Claessen lab addresses fundamental questions related to multicellular growth and development in filamentous bacteria called streptomycetes. By making use of genetic, biochemical, cell-biological, and various next-generation sequencing technologies we use a multidisciplinary approach to understand and control the physiology of these bacteria. Our aim is to answer key questions related to cell functioning including cell morphogenesis, cell signaling, and protein transport and folding.
