Research performed in the Laboratory of Biotransformation integrates both chemical and biological disciplines. It embraces biotransformations and chemical modifications of natural compounds (polyphenols, flavonoids, alkaloids, antibiotics, etc.) organic nitriles, saccharides as well as isolation of microorganisms and uses their enzymes for biotransformations. One of the main interests of a laboratory staff is devoted to antioxidants and polyphenols. Research is formally structured into several projects – according to given or planned grants – but coherent mutual collaboration exists throughout the laboratory. In the team there is a number of foreign scientists (e.g. GB, Arg, IT, PL, SK, DE). The group maintains rich international contacts and a number of bilateral projects and two multilateral EU FP7 projects in now being solved.
