Group Staff

Matthias Meyer (Group leader)


Ayinuer Aximu-Petri (head of the automation lab)

I am developing lab automation protocols for the Bravo NGS workstation and other liquid handling devices and oversee the whole sample preparation workflow. In addition, I am a member of the sequencing group and operate our in-house DNA sequencers (Illumina, PacBio and Sanger sequencing technologies).

 

 

 

 

 


Marie-Theres Gansauge (Postdoc)

I am developing and improving methods for DNA library preparation from ancient DNA. This work is aiming to improve our understanding of DNA degradation patterns and ultimately increasing the yield of DNA sequences from ancient specimens.

 

 

 

 


Mateja Hajdinjak (Postdoc)


David López Herráez (Postdoc)


Louisa Jáuregui (Project coordinator)

By monitoring sample progress and keeping abreast of ongoing endeavors in the group, I work to facilitate the communication between collaborating scientists and our researchers here in Leipzig. My primary focus pertains to projects involving DNA-retrieval from sediment.
