Group members

Projects of the group members @ Molecular Microbiology


The individual projects of our research group are shown below. Each member of the research group is working on individual scientific aims either as postdoctoral research associate, PhD student, or MSc student.
Topics range from bacterial gene expression, exopolymer synthesis, and protein secretion in the model organism, Pseudomonas syringae, via quorum sensing and multidrug efflux systems of Erwinia amylovora, to marine bacteria-diatom interactions and biofilm formation mechanisms as well as magrove-associated bacterial nitrogen-fixation and biotech research for space flights.
