My Research

Using fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) to study intracellular properties.

 

I work in the Molecular Ecology Core group under direct supervision of Prof. Dr. Rudolf Amann. My field of research focuses on the visualization of intracellular properties and entities, ranging from viruses via the uptake of carbon sources such as laminarin to ribosomes, via light microscopy. To do so, we use epifluorescent microscopy in combination with fluorescently labeled probes and substrates. We, thus, try to assess the environment-specific activity of the assessed microbial organisms.
