Dr Jana Katharina Schniete

Research Associate


Personal statement

My research interests are in the areas of

  1. Molecular Microbiology with a focus on understanding bacterial metabolism and its evolution as well as finding ways how to manipulate it for the production of useful chemicals
  2. Microbial ecology by studying the microbial physiology in combination with their genome and gene expression profiles under different conditions
  3. Development of novel super resolution microscopy techniques for imaging biological structures.
