The Functional Metabolomics Lab, part of the CMFI Cluster of Excellence at the University of Tübingen,  aims to understand and control microbial communities to contribute to the fight against infections. The group, led by Daniel Petras, combines a multidisciplinary approach at the interface of natural product research, mass-spectrometry-based metabolomics, proteomics and chemical biology.



The lab's science mission is to develop and apply new tools to systematically determine the role of small molecules in complex microbial communities and to mine novel bioactive compounds.
