Matthias has defended his doctoral thesis on “The complexity of gene regulatory networks in a photosynthetic model organism” at October 26, 2020, with summa cum laude. Big congratulations to this outstanding result and thanks to the DFG for funding through the “MeInBio – BioInMe” PhD program!
We congratulate Juliane, for receiving the “Elisabeth Gateff Prize 2019” from the German Genetics Society and the “Hans Grisebach Preis 2019” of our university, for her outstanding dissertation on the „Identification and characterization of crRNA processing endoribonucleases and new insights in adaptation and interference during CRISPR-Cas immunity in the model cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803“!
Our website for the annual meeting on “Sensory and Regulatory RNAs in Prokaryotes” is online now. We feel privileged that this year’s meeting will take place in Freiburg and are looking forward to it!
On FEB 04, 2019, Steffen defended his doctoral thesis on the topic of „Big Data Meets Biology – Revealing Hidden Layers Of Information“. Steffen has contributed to workflow and data modularization concepts for RNA-Sequencing and metatranscriptome experiments, developed an approach for the automated and reliable detection of homologs to bacterial sRNAs and much more. Big congratulations for finishing the thesis work so well!
