|Skills to be acquired in this module||
The students can contribute to current scientific projects (under guidance). They know modern analytical techniques. They know and understand recent scientific literature. They can write scientific reports, present their results and discuss them in the public.
“Ecophysiology of prokaryotes”: Projects derived from current scientific programs are carried out, typically in groups of two students guided by a senior scientist or PhD student. Typical project deal with: - Anaerobic processes - Molecular analysis of microbial communities - Sediment microbiology - Physiological experiments and activity measurements - Impact of viruses - Microscopic analysis of chemotaxis In the accompanying seminar, recent scientific studies in international journals are presented by the students. The results are summarized and discussed in a protocol fulfilling scientific level requirements.
