Nils Nebel

Nils Nebel studied biology at the University of Freiburg, where he wrote his bachelor thesis on regulation of microRNA processing under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Tanja Vogel at the Institute of Anatomy. During his master program, he shifted his focused towards plant systems, maintaining his interest in cell biology and cell differentiation. He joined our group for his master thesis on the spatiotemporal distribution of anionic lipids on peribacteroid membranes inside the root nodule.
Keen on further investigating intracellular infection during root nodule symbiosis, he stayed in our lab starting his doctoral thesis in October 2021. He is aiming to find new candidate genes involved in the facilitation of bacterial release into host-derived compartments and symbiotic cell differentiation in the root nodule tissue.
