New publication

We have a new publication in Organic Geochemistry showing that the brGMGT ‘orphan’ lipids found abundantly in soil are produced by heterotrophic bacteria distinct from those producing brGDGTs: Heterotrophic origin and diverse sources of branched glycerol monoalkyl glycerol tetraethers (brGMGTs) in peats and lignites.

Launch of the HYDROCARB project

We just launched the HYDROCARB project, which is funded by the DFG through the Emmy Noether program. Within the project we aim to develop novel paleoclimate proxies based on the carbon and hydrogen isotopic compositions of archaeal lipids. Check out our Projects page for more information. PhD and postdoctoral position will become available soon andContinue reading “Launch of the HYDROCARB project”
