We conduct research on diverse topics related to the biosorption and -accumulation of environmental contaminants in bacteria and fungi isolated from the boreal environment. Our techniques include e.g. molecular biology techniques (DNA sequencing including 16S rRNA sequencing and next-generation sequencing, protein isolation and purification, electrophoresis, protein sequencing), spectroscopic and chromatographic methods (ATR-FT-IR, EDX, GC-MS), tracer techniques and imaging techniques (TEM, SEM, autoradiography).
