The State Key Laboratory of Microbial Metabolism at Shanghai Jiao Tong University was established in 2011. Our lab is led by Prof. Zixin Deng with 73 fellows, which consist of 49 professors(or research fellows. We are investigating bioactive secondary metabolites of microorganisms including Synthesis and Degradative pathways and their interactive model by various state-of-the-art approaches involved in molecular biology, microbiology, biochemistry, genomics and synthetic biology. Another focus of our research is DNA sulphur modifications. A growing effort is underway to reveal the genetics of microorganisms and subsequently make use of it to improve antibiotic production and bioactivity. At the same time, we aim to cultivate experts on microbial metabolism and make contribution to pharmaceutical industry and agricultural pest prevention.
