Congratulations Astrid!

Astrid joined PriME three years ago to pursue her PhD in the Schubert/Ackermann group. She investigated the role of contact-dependent killing between oceanic microbes by using genomic, transcriptomic, and imaging data from a lab example as well as by studying metagenomes and metatranscriptomes from complex oceanic microbial communities.

She recently successfully defended her thesis on “Nutrient Acquisition Strategies of Heterotrophic Marine Bacteria – From the Microscale to Biogeochemical Cycles”concluding her journey in PriME.

Thank you, Astrid, for your commitment, contribution and nice time spent together in PriME . Goodbye for now and all the best for the future!
