Interested in biology? Casual science talk? And in podcasts? Well, here you’ll get it all.

In this podcast, we’ll examine synthetic biology and especially so-called Antimicrobial Peptides (AMPs) from different angles, introduce guests from various backgrounds, talk about different approaches to the topic, and about the ethics of it all.

Tune in every other week to listen to the latest episode!

And of course, thank you for listening!

Ep. 04 | Jun.-Prof. Dr. Andreas Dräger on systems biology and fighting antimicrobial-resistant pathogens
This week we are talking to Jun.-Prof. Dr. Andreas Dräger and how he is developing computational models for fighting antimicrobial-resistant pathogens and other diseases. We learn about his current work, what systems biology actually is, and what we should look out for in the future. If you want to find out more, check out his YouTube channel at: Thank you for listening!

Ep. 03 | Prof. Nadine Ziemert on bioinformatics-assisted discovery of new medical compounds
In this episode, we talk to Prof. Nadine Ziemert, who is a researcher at the University of Tuebingen. Her field is the bioinformatics-focused search for new biomedical compounds, especially through the identification of secondary metabolite gene clusters, which encode for the synthesis of different bioactive compounds such as antibiotics. We also talk about potentially interesting organisms, that could be important sources for these novel compounds. As always thank you for listening! :)

Ep. 01 | Our project for the iGEM competition, anti-microbial peptides, and cyclotides
Listen to the very first episode of the AMPodcast! In this episode, we will talk about our project for this year's iGEM competition. Meet 4 of our motivated team members and learn more about cyclotides, a special class of extraordinarily stable proteins, antimicrobial peptides (AMPs), a class of proteins with antibacterial effects, and how they could be useful to combat the ever-growing crisis of antibiotic resistance.
