Microbial transformations constitute a major determining factor for the chemical fate of organic compounds in complex systems. One of my aims is to develop and implement new molecular biological tools for characterizing and quantifying the role microbes play in the in situ transformation of organic pollutants. Particular emphasis is on techniques that (1) allow for quantification of the respective biocatalysts, and (2) provide information of relevant microbes on the single cell level. In the past, my contributions were in the areas of anaerobic transformation of chlorinated ethenes and aromatic compounds, as well as in genomics and functional genomics of sulphur compound-metabolizing microbes.
