Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Based on primary scientific literature, attendants familiarize themselves with a current research theme of Microbial Ecology. They present this subject to their peers and supervisors in a seminar lecture, which is followed by an open discussion of the topic. Subsequently, the attendants identify potentially interesting open scientific questions related to their topic and write a short research proposal, as if they were to obtain funding to pursue these scientific questions in a research project. Finally, this research proposal is presented in a second seminar talk and discussed with peers and supervisors.
