Metabolic and microbiological analytics link the broad field of genomics and transcriptomics to phenotypic data. Our analytical team addresses different fields of research ranging from the basic understanding of metabolic pathways to the exploitation of biotechnological applications.
The analyses are offered to researchers of the DSMZ and collaboration partners and contribute to the development of the DSMZ services.

The department maintains its own analytical infrastructure including high-resolution mass spectrometry, gas and liquid chromatography and a MALDI-Biotyper system.

The DSMZ services department is involved in the BRICS (Braunschweig Integrated Centre of Systems Biology) and firmly connected to in-house research topics.
