Dr. Greta Reintjes

I am a marine biologist and microbial ecologist investigating microbiomes, the com­munit­y of mi­croor­gan­isms col­on­iz­ing a par­tic­u­lar eco­sys­tem, and the role they play in the local and global biogeochemical cycling of carbon.

I study the microorganisms from two environments – the world oceans and animal digestive systems – and although these habitats might seem quite distinct from each other, the microorganisms in both systems use the same pathways to process complex sugars.


Presently I am working in the Abbott Group at the Lethbridge Research and Development Center of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada for the outgoing phase of a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Research Fellowship.
