Master Student Jakob Klinge Meier

Photo of Jakob Klinge MeierDuring my studies I have previously focused on terrestrial ecology and I have an interest in the interactions between organisms, both small and large.
The focus of my thesis will be on the interactions between members of a synthetic community in the wheat rhizosphere that I am creating, and the host plant itself - to an extent. I am planning on investigating community structure and how plant growth is affected by the SynCom, with regards to functional redundancy. Furthermore, if I have the time, I am planning to investigate recruitment of beneficial bacteria during fungal pathogen infection of the wheat plant.

Place of employment: University of Copenhagen, Department of Plant and Environmental Sciences, Microbial Ecology and Biotechnology.
