Is part of the following projects:


Eric Helfrich is expert in genome mining and manipulation to functionalize natural products into intelligent probes. He deciphered the biosynthetic blueprints and biosynthetic principles of trans-AT polyketide synthases, giant multi-enzyme, assembly line-like subcellular compartments, whose complex architectures provide insights into their evolution and enable accurate structural predictions of the complex bioactive polyketides associated with these systems.
