KurzbeschreibungLaboratory course. Research projects in the field of plant microbiomes are conducted in small groups. They address open questions related to plant microbiomes and include microbial community assembly, microbial interactions, plant protection and plant immunity.
LernzielIntroduction to relevant subjects of the biology of plant-associated microorganisms. Training in practical work in a research laboratory. Exposure to current research topics in the field of plant microbiomes. Scientific writing in form of a research report.
InhaltResearch project in plant microbiomes. The techniques used will depend on the project, e.g. PCR, cloning, microbial community analysis via next-generation sequencing, plant inoculation experiments, phenotypic analyses, fluorescence microscopy, gene expression, metabolomics, bioinformatics
Skriptnone
LiteraturWill be provided for each of the projects at the beginning of the course.
551-1103-00LMicrobial Biochemistry4 KP2VJ. Vorholt-Zambelli, J. Piel
KurzbeschreibungThe lecture course aims at providing an advanced understanding of the physiology and metabolism of microorganisms. Emphasis is on processes that are specific to bacteria and archaea and that contribute to the widespread occurrence of prokaryotes. Applied aspects of microbial biochemistry will be pointed out as well as research fields of current scientific interest.
LernzielThe lecture course aims at providing an advanced understanding of the physiology and metabolism of microorganisms.
InhaltImportant biochemical processes specific to bacteria and archaea will be presented that contribute to the widespread occurrence of prokaryotes. Applied aspects of microbial biochemistry will be pointed out as well as research fields of current scientific interest. Emphasis is on concepts of energy generation and assimilation.

List of topics:
Microbial Biochemistry and origin of life
Methanogenesis and methylotrophy
Anaerobic oxidation of methane
Microbial autotrophy
Complex: (Ligno-)Cellulose and in demand for bioenergy
Challenging: Aromatics and hydrocarbons
Living on a diet and the anaplerotic provocation
20 amino acids: the making of
Extending the genetic code
The 21st and 22nd amino acid
Some exotic biochemistry: nucleotides, cofactors
Ancient biochemistry? Iron-sulfur clusters, polymers
