On November 23rd, I gave an invited talk for the graduate schools of Microbiology at the Max Planck Institute of Terrestrial Microbiology, the Philips University Marburg and the University of Tuebingen. It was an excellent meeting covering diverse aspects of microbiology, especially structural and molecular microbiology. It was wonderful to
We discovered that Baltic Sea consortia rich in Geobacter and Methanosarcina carried out syntrophic acetate oxidation (SAO) mediated by conductive particles. It’s a really exciting finding not only because it is of importance to our understanding of the iron the methane cycles but also because: it raises questions how anthropogenic discharge
On the 9th of October Amelia gave a talk about syntrophic acetate oxidation at the Survival Artist workshop in Marburg. The list of speakers was incredible for anyone interested in interspecies interactions and not only. Survival Artists 2017 Flyer – neu 29.Sept Very thankful to Andreas Brune for the invite.
