The project is lead by the Department of Molecular Biology at Umeå University and the researchers will study the toxin and antitoxin systems that dramatically affect the physiology and growth of bacteria, and protect against viral infection. Herwig Schüler, BioNut, is co-applicant in the 5-year project, which will receive SEK 29,6 millions in project grant from KAW.
