On the occasion of the PhD defense of Ruben Props, the Center for Microbial Ecology and Technology (CMET) organizes the seminar Single cell technologies for microbial community characterization.


A detailed program will follow later.

  • Prof. Wei Huang, Synthetic biology & single-cell biotechnology, University of Oxford (UK): Raman activated cell sorting and metagenomics sequencing reveals carbon-fixing bacteria in the ocean.
  • Prof. Hyun-Dong Chang, Deutsches Rheuma-Forschungszentrum (DRFZ), Berlin (DE): Flow Cytometry and Cell Sorting of a Defined Intestinal Microbiota
  • Dr. Michael Besmer (CEO), OnCyt microbiology AG, Zürich (CH): On-line/Real-time Flow Cytometry for Microbial Monitoring
  • Dr. Björn Biederman, rqmicro AG, Schlieren (CH): Rapid & reliable detection of pathogens
  • Prof. Frank Delvigne, Université de Liège (BE): Phenotypic heterogeneity in bioprocess monitoring

Moderator: M.Sc. Cristina García Timermans, Ghent University - CMET (BE)

Q&A session

  • The lectures are followed by a Q&A session on practical flow cytometry: Set-up and design considerations for routine flow cytometric monitoring of microbial populations
