Helmholtz Zentrum München
Brief Biography: 

Anne Schöler is a PostDoc at the Research Unit Environmental Genomics at Helmholtz Zentrum München.

She obtained her engineering degree in Biotechnology at the Technische Universität Berlin in 2008. For her PhD studies she moved to Basel to the Friedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical Research to work in the area of epigenetics.  During her PhD she investigated the interplay of transcription factors and chromatin changes during cellular differentiation of mouse stem cells, trying to understand how mammalian genes are regulated.

Anne joined the Helmholtz Zentrum München in November 2012 as part of the Trainbiodiverse FP7 Marie Curie Initial Training Network. She will focus her work on bacterial gene regulation. In particular, she will identify microorganisms that drive cellulose degradation in soil and try to understand how these cellulase genes are regulated.
