Max-Planck-Institut for terrestrial Microbiology
The Max Planck Institute for Terrestrial Microbiology was founded in Marburg on January 1, 1991, with plans for three departments and one department independent junior group. The founding director was Rudolf K. Thauer, professor of microbiology in the Faculty of Biology at the Philipps University in Marburg since 1976. The research of the institute today focuses on microbial ecology in terrestrial habitats (soil), with emphasis in the areas of biogeochemistry, biochemistry, ecophysiology, and organismic interactions.
