Laboratory of Applied Biochemistry focuses on the application of biochemical methods in various scientific fields. We apply biochemical, molecular biological, transcriptomic, genomic, proteomic techniques for the study glycobiology of ticks and tick-borne pathogens, tick-host-pathogen interactions, nanostructured surface functionalization, and the study of fish development.

The Laboratory of Analytical and Environmental Chemistry is engaged in the development of analytical methods and their subsequent use for the analysis of water, soil, cigarette butts, plant materials, extracts from animal faeces and selected substances in blood, serum and urine samples. Environmentally oriented research is focused on the fate of substances in the environment (e.g. organic pollutants from cigarette butts) and the photodegradation of widely prescribed drugs under light conditions relevant to natural surface waters and subsequent toxicity tests of photoproduct mixtures.

We are currently equipped with four mass spectrometers:
Bruker Daltonics Autoflex Speed MALDI-TOF/TOF
Waters Q-TOF Premier
Waters Synapt G2-Si, hydrogen-deuterium exchange mass spectrometry
Bruker Daltonics timsTOF Pro
If you are interested in analysis of your protein samples or a collaboration, please, contact us.
Our research group is taking the advantage of living on the border in between biology and physics. We are mostly focused on single-molecule research and we are currently looking for motivated students of all degrees!
