The main area of Lena’s research is the development of Synthetic Biology tools to optimize terologous expression in the well-known, fast growing and easy to handle host Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Here, she focuses on promoter engineering studies, including optogenetics, to allow precise and parallel regulation of multiple gene expression. With this, whole biological pathways can be fine-tuned to increase the production yield of technically, pharmaceutically or medical relevant substances, like e.g. plant metabolites. Lena is also interested in studying simple plants, like the liverwort Marchantia polymorpha, to use them as chassis for pathway engineering projects.

The main area of Zhivka`s research interest is the initiation and micropropagation of plant in vitro cultures, as wells as, qualitative and quantitative assessment of the accumulated secondary metabolites. Zhivka is also interested in the estimation of the potential biological activity of plant-derived extracts and pure molecules in human and cancer cell lines.
