MPI for Marine Microbiology, Bremen | Germany
My lab studies the diversity, ecology, and evolution of symbioses between bacteria and marine invertebrates from chemosynthetic environments such as deep-sea hydrothermal vents, cold seeps, whale and wood falls, upwelling regions, and coastal sediments. We use a wide array of methods to study chemosynthetic symbioses that range from deep-sea in situ tools to metagenomics, metatranscriptomics, metaproteomics, metabolomics and imaging analyses.
