The Laboratory of Microbial Ecology and Technology (LabMET) is a part of the Faculty of Bioscience Engineering. LabMET is focused on the use and functioning of microbial communities. LabMET works in the fields of applied microbial ecology, functional food and feed, medical microbial ecology, risk assessment, biomaterials and nanotechnology, water treatment, aquaculture, bioenergy and bioproduction, and soils and sediments. Most of the research involves a combination of engineering and (molecular) biotechnology enabled by a multidisciplinary research environment comprising reactor/technology facilities with molecular biotechnology and analytical laboratories.
