Welcome to the Ott lab @ University of Freiburg

On the following pages we have assembled some information on different aspects of our recent research on plant cell biology, teaching and services. Just follow the different links from the menu bar. Our research focus is on membrane dynamics and signalling during plant-microbe interactions. Here, we study the molecular mechanisms that enable host cells to…

Our work in CIBSS

Our work in frame of the newly funded excellence cluster ‘Centre for Integrative Biological Signalling Studies‘ (CIBSS) was just highlighted in the online magazine of the University of Freiburg. If you are interested, read the full article.

PhD position available

Applications are invited for a Ph.D. position to join the Group of Marco Trujillo at the University of Freiburg. Research in the Trujillo lab (www.trujillolab.com) focuses on understanding ubiquitin signalling and its roles in the regulation of immune responses and general protein homeostasis. Previous and ongoing research in the Lab has uncovered key roles of…

EMBO course on Electron Microscopy

Registration is open for the EMBO course “Advanced methods of electron microscopy in cell biology” held between 10-20 June 2019 in České Budějovice, Czech Republic. We are also happy to announce that the head of our Electron Microscopy Facility, Marta Rodriguez-Franco, will be teaching there as well. Don’t miss to register and get inspired there.…

New confocal microscope funded!

We just received a letter from our funding agency (DFG) stating that our application for a new confocal microscope was fully accepted! So finally FLIM will be available in our imaging facility @MIAP_Freiburg. Thanks to all anonymous reviewers and DFG for the support.

Congratulations, Nikolaj!

A great story from the lab of Katharina Markmann (Tübingen, Germany) was just published in Science. Nikolaj Abel, PhD student in our team and co-author on the paper, contributed experiments as an MSc student to this work, where they demonstrate that miR2111 regulates the symbiotic repressor TOO MUCH LOVE. It functions as a hub during…
