Nicolas Thilo Wirth Ph.D. Student

Enthusiast of microbial metabolic engineering and synthetic biology and excited to work at the front of a dawning biotechnological era.


I am in charge of preparing chemically-competent E. coli cells for the whole group. Besides, I have created the vicious fortune-wheel of weekly lab tasks (see Fig. 1) and savagely take care that every member of the lab fulfills their duty… sometimes. I furthermore keep an eye on a steady supply of productivity-enhancing measures, i.e. coffee.
