Current Research

Marine heterotrophic bacteria are a major force, driving the carbon-, nitrogen- and other nutrient cycles and influencing marine dissolved organic matter (DOM) in the oceans. Many taxa are involved in phytoplankton blooms and their degradation  By using modern sequencing and bioinformatic approaches (Amplicon sequencing, Metagenome & Metatranscriptome) we are investigating the influence of bacterial groups and their respective ecological functions on the geometabolome in environmental and experimental samples.
