Dr. Halina Tegetmeyer received her Ph.D. in infection biology at the Hannover Medical School (MHH) in Hannover, Germany, in the field of microbiology. She started her postdoctoral work at the Max Plack Institute for Marine Microbiology (Bremen, Germany), researching the interaction of microbial communities and their environment in marine habitats, with a focus on nitrate respiration. Her research involved the analysis of microbial metagenomes and metatranscriptomes, and was done in cooperation with the Center for Biotechnology (CeBiTec, Bielefeld University, Germany). High throughput sequencing data analysis became a major focus in her studies of microbial communities, along with the adaptation and optimization of high throughput sequencing technology for samples from extreme habitats. Her further research at the CeBiTec involved the analysis of microbial communities adapted to biogas production at very high pH, and later on the study of microorganisms inhabiting the deep sea, as well as the Arctic and the Pacific Ocean, in research groups of the Max Plack Institute for Marine Microbiology (Bremen) and the Alfred Wegener Institute in Bremerhaven, Germany. She continues to pursue her research interest in the study of microbiomes using metagenome and metatranscriptome analysis at CeBiTec.
