Welcome to the Homepage of the Research Unit Analytical BioGeoChemistry
The research unit Analytical BioGeoChemistry is composed of three very intimately connected Research & Development Segments which jointly evaluate themes in organic geochemistry (GEO), metabolomics (BIO) and metallomics. Our recognition feature is the strong expertise in analytical, (metal)organic and inorganic chemistry (CHEM), operating with own-developed mathematical data evaluation tools to depict biological and biogeochemical processes with molecular resolution.
The research unit Analytical BioGeoChemistry offers leading expertise in the description of complex systems in biology and organic geochemistry based on foremost knowledge in analytical chemistry (separation sciences, spectroscopy, spectrometry, hyphenation, small volume handling) for organic and metallo-organic (organometallics and coordination compounds) materials. The molecular diversity in various compartments of biogeo- and (eco)systems as well as their evolution in time and space is elucidated by means of comprehensive data acquisition and evaluation including non linear statistics and novel visualisation tools.
