Fraunhofer USA Internships

Intern Experience

Amazing people

During my internship in the Microbiology group at the Center for Molecular Biotechnology I was involved in several aspects of antibiotics discovery. I received training in the isolation and characterization of novel soil derived bacterial strains and got to know a variety of different purification processes of antimicrobial agents.
