Samenvatting (EN)

[Aim]:
We focus on the characterization of the genes involved in B12-biosynthesis, their expression and function. We aim (i) to elucidate the B12-biosynthetic pathway in lactobacilli and perform comparative genomics with other microorganisms (ii) and to improve B12-production through overexpression of B12-genes and/or through insight in regulatory mechanisms using transcriptomics (DNA-arrays) technology. This research will also generate major possibilities for industrial application, such as development of fermented foods with increased vitamin B12-levels.
