Kiel Marine Science

Research questions

  • How do Prokarya regulate their nitrogen metabolism on a molecular level? How is nitrogen fixation regulated in (marine) diazotrophs?
  • What are the main players, reactions and process rates in the marine nitrogen cycle?
  • How can we use the marine genetic resources concerning potential biotechnological and medical approaches? (metagenomic approaches)
  • What are the driving forces for the establishment of the microbiota on a marine host, and what is the benefit for the host?
  • How are biofilms formed on living and non-living surfaces? How is high CO2 and temperature influencing the microbial consortia?
  • How is the Prokaryotic immune system (CRISPR) functioning in Methanoarchaea?
  • How do Methanoarchaea interact with the human innate immune system?
