RESEARCH INTEREST

 

As a molecular biologist, I support ongoing experiments in the group. I also try to give general advice and support, furthermore I am contributing to the organisation of the lab.

Molecular analysis of ant immunity

To study our host-pathogen systems, I am applying molecular techniques such as quantitative PCR to determine immune gene expression in ants after exposure of individual ants or a colony to fungal, viral or bacterial pathogens. I further work with RNAi as a method to manipulate gene expression.
