Research - Microorganisms

Head of Department: Prof. Dr. Michael Pester

The Department Microorganisms studies the whole breadth of prokaryotic diversity and the relevance of microorganisms for biogeochemical, ecological, and biotechnological processes. We use state-of-the art molecular tools to identify key players in their specific habitat and strive to isolate them into pure culture using our long-standing expertise in cultivation. Please see our Research Activities below for more details.
