Monday, 28.09.2020 General
Gabriele Berg, professor at the Graz University of Technology, gave the e-nema staff an insight into her extraordinary field of research.
Not visible to the naked eye, but nevertheless present almost everywhere: the microbiome is the community of microscopically small bacteria, primordial bacteria, algae and fungi.
This field of research is developing from a niche to mainstream and Prof. Gabriele Berg has played a significant role in this rapid development.
Her research focuses on the analysis of microbial functions in plants, especially in the rhizosphere. New discoveries led to the development of innovative biotechnological products and processes for plant protection and biostimulation.
