About Us

The Alfonta lab studies electron transfer processes between proteins, enzymes and entire microorganisms and electrodes. Using Synthetic Biology tools and specifically genetic code expansion through stop codon suppression, we possess and sometimes develop a very versatile tool box to change redox and wiring properties of proteins and biofilms, thus enabling efficient and directed communication between the biological to the electrode interface.
