We investigate anaerobic respiratory processes in model cultures and
subterrestrial environments. We have a special interest in anaerobic
respiration with external electron acceptors. One such respiration is
the organohalide respiration with halogenated solvents such as
perchloroethene or chlorinated benzenes. However, also other significant
biogeochemical respiratory reactions are investigated. We develop,
adapt and apply microbiological, biochemical, molecular and genomic
tools for our research.
