Ott Lab on Facebook

Our new Facebook page is online now. You can find us as “Dynamic Plant Membrane Interfaces”. While some of the web content will be shared there, we will also post some other lab news including teaching information, student positions, group activities, etc. Just follow us or post a comment.

Paper accepted

A comprehensive review by Thomas on “Membrane nanodomains and microdomains in plant–microbe interactions” has just been accepted for publication in Current Opinion in Plant Biology.  In this review, we not only summarize the most relevant recent findings but also suggest a novel nomenclature to precisely differentiate between types of membrane sub-compartments (i.e. membrane nanodomains and…

Teaching award

We were awarded this years prize for excellent teaching for our basic module cell biology. This annual competition is steered by the local student association of the Faculty of Biology and is based on the results of the anonymous teaching evaluations done by all students during the respective courses. We really appreciate this and are…

Claudia defended her thesis

Claudia successfully defended her thesis at the LMU in Munich! In her work, she made major contributions for our understanding of the membrane binding mechanism of remorins and studied symbiotic dualism in legumes. Congratulations Claudia! We wish you good luck for your future.
