In the Extremophiles/Space Biochemistry group we apply multi-omics analysis of microbial survivability in outer space in order to understand how microorganisms can withstand space journeys. Furthermore, microbial chemolithotrophic interactions with extraterrestrial materials are a focus of our investigations to reveal potential biosignatures for life search missions.
