New building is ready – more space for marine microbiology

Nov 11, 2020

They are the true rulers of the earth: microorganisms. Without them there would be no air to breathe, no soil to grow food, no clean water. Microbes in the sea and ocean play a significant role in making the "System Earth" work. Yet little is known about them. This is why research on marine micro...

Water at the end of the tunnel

Sep 28, 2020

We humans need oxygen to breath – for a lot of microbes it is a lethal poison. That is why microorganisms have developed ways to render oxygen molecules harmless. Microbiologists from Bremen, Marburg and Grenoble have now succeeded in decrypting such a mechanism. They show, how methane-generating...
