Welcome to the Bange Lab 

The Bange Lab is located at the Philipps-University-Marburg - one of the most traditional places for natural sciences in Germany.

We are part of the interdisciplinary LOEWE Center for Synthetic Microbiology (Synmikro) and the Faculty of Chemistry.

Microorganisms provide the greatest diversity within the biosphere and conquered every possible niche ranging from hot springs to the human gut. 

Key to the evolutionary success is their fast adaptability leading to specific features attributed to the environmental settings. 


The mission of the AG Bange is to understand the molecular inventory of microbes and its adaptation through the course of evolution by combining high-resolution techniques with systems- and cell biology approaches.

Florian recieves "Peter and Traudl Engelhorn" fellowship.


Congratulations to Dr. Florian Altegoer for recieving one of the prestigious PostDoc fellowships of the "Peter und Traudl Engelhorn" foundation. The foundation awards annually about 5 fellowships in the field of life sciences to outstanding

postdoctoral students. See also: http://ptes.2c4b.de//index.php/




Pausch et al. made the cover!


We are grateful to Janis Mengel for his abstract interpretation of our work.

Janis, Thank you for this great gift.


PS: If you want to see the original, you have to visit the lab ;-)



Kurt-Dehnicke award goes to Wieland. 


Dr. Wieland (Willy) Steinchen recieved the Kurt-Dehnicke Award for his excellent PhD thesis at the Department of Chemistry at the Philipps-University Marburg.


The awarded thesis clarified structure and mechanism of small (p)ppGpp synthetases, which are important to bacterial stress- and environment sensing.


Great Joint Venture with the group of Lennart Randau on CRISPR-Cas published in Molecular Cell !


Pausch P, Müller-Esparza H, Gleditzsch D, Altegoer F, Randau L, Bange G (2017).

Structural variation of type I-F CRISPR RNA guided DNA surveillance.

Molecular Cell, DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.molcel.2017.06.036. 

Mohamad recieves PhD fellowship.


We welcome Mohamad Majkini as new PhD student in the lab. He studied biochemistry and organic chemistry at the University of Allepo (Syria). With his PhD fellowship from the government of Hessen dedicated to refugee scientists, he investigates how bacteria sense environmental and stress conditions.

PhD positions avalaible in the Bange Lab.
