Research Focus

  • The Research Unit for Comparative Microbiome Analyses is embedded in the research environment of the Helmholtz Zentrum München at the Campus Neuherberg. Our mission is to develop strategies for the sustainable use of genetic resources of microbes to improve human, animal and plant health. Therefore, we are using high-end sequencing technologies in combination with cultivation depending enrichment techniques, gene quantification methods, localization of microbes in their respective habitats as well as stable isotope probing.
