Mitri2.jpg Our group is interested in understanding how ecosystems of  microbes evolve over time, and how they are shaped by the interactions taking place between individual microbial cells, strains and species.

Our group applies synthetic biology tools to build gene regulatory networks. We then use them to study their mechanisms, properties and evolution.

Yolanda Schearli lab


The Veening lab uses systems and synthetic biology approaches to study chromosome segregation, mechanisms of antibiotic resistance development, and noise in gene expression in the important opportunistic human pathogen Streptococcus pneumoniae.

My research laboratory is involved in understanding how the mucosal immune system discriminates between pathogens and commensal bacteria, with application to the design of mucosal vaccines targeting pathogens and allergy.
