Department of Molecular Ecology

The Department of Molecular Ecology headed by Rudolf Amann analyzes the diversity, composition, and function of marine microbial communities mainly by nucleic acid-based methods. Techniques such as comparative sequence analysis including genomics and metagenomics, fluorescence in situ hybridization, microscopy and flow cytometry are applied to study benthic and planktonic microbial communities.
