Assignment and Research Activities

PhD student in the department of Bacteriology

  • Collaboration in the BLE-funded project 'Phytotyper' (Identification of phytopathogenic microorganisms with the MALDI Biotyper method)
  • Further development of MALDI-TOF MS based methods for species identification of microorganisms for phytomedical practice
  • Development of a reference database with protein spectra of cultivable, plant-associated microorganisms
  • Elaboration of the database

    • To improve diagnostics especially for heterogenic bacterial species (e.g. Pseudomonas syringae group)
    • By molecular biological species identification (16S rDNA sequencing and multilocus sequence analysis)

  • Development of MALDI biotyper-based methods for diagnosis and species identification of non-culturable phytopathogenic microorganisms (phytoplasmas, viruses if applicable)
