I support the research in MIE especially in the fields of molecular biology and microbiology. For seven years I have worked at the Leibniz institute of Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research (IPK), mainly on the transformation of barley. I was also on the team working on a physical map of the barley genome, and I was involved in the sequencing of barley chromosomes (next generation sequencing). I use my extensive experience in molecular plant biology to train and support students and researchers at iDiv, as well as to develop protocols to analyze induced plant responses.
Molecular biology: isolation of RNA, DNA and proteins; polymerase-chain-reaction (PCR), RT-PCR, Real-Time PCR, transformation, sequencing, gene expression
Microbiology: plant and bacterial cell cultures
