Associated research groups



Loog lab Our special focus is to understand the processing of kinase signals via multisite phosphorylation networks in disordered proteins.



Lahtvee lab  Our goal is to advance bio-based technologies for energy and chemical production so that these industries can once again become environmentally sustainable.



Kivisaar lab  Study of regulation of mutagenic processes in pseudomonads as a function of physiological state of bacteria.



Tenson lab Our research aims to elucidate the molecular mechanisms of antibiotic action and antibiotic resistance. Of particular interest are the actions of macrolides and other antibiotics that inhibit protein synthesis.



Ustav lab We study how Human Papillomaviruses (HPV) persist in human epithelia long enough to cause severe problems.



Merits lab Many RNA viruses have capacity to replicate their RNAs in CHO cells. Our group will use this property, first, to generate cells containing permanently replicating RNA.



Vilo lab The group has extensive experience in high-throughput genomic data analysis and in generating probabilistic models for genetic mapping.



Parts lab Our research group has a vast experience in yeast genomics, focusing on mapping, modeling, and predicting growth traits.



Kollist lab We are a plant signaling group and the research carried out in the lab can be divided into three interconnected topics: (i) Stomatal signaling, (ii) N-acylethanolamines signaling, and (iii) Natural variation as molecular tools.



Kurg lab We are investigating the cell proliferation processes with the aim to understand the regulation of controlled growth and uncontrolled proliferation with the focus on methyltransferases.



Kaido Kurrikoff
The group aims to develop novel drug delivery systems of biosynthetic origin using mammalian cell factories.
