Bacteriocins are currently grouped according to their structure, modifications, and producing organism. We are building a bacteriocin collection organized according to their application within an industrially relevant context.

We are studying the bacteriocins in this collection individually and in mixed cocktails to understand their antimicrobial effects against a variety of target organisms.

In addition to our physical collection, we keep a digital library of bacteriocin sequences that can be easily and quickly synthesized and implemented, depending on need. We also expand our collection of existing bacteriocins by producing a collection of novel bacteriocins through synthetic biology techniques.
