PhD defense Batirtze Prats-Mateu

It´s done. Yesterday Bati gave an excellent talk on „Tip in-light on: Raman and AFM studies of biological materials“ and mastered very good all questions. CONGRATULATION and all the best for the future. Also the other group member did a very good job by providing a really good doctoral hat  and a nice surprise.

Kinderuni 2018

Auch dieses Jahr waren wir mit unserem Programm „Tricks aus dem Pflanzenreich für die Technik“  bei der KINDERUNI 2018 dabei. Die Kinder waren begeistert von der Selbsteinigung des Lotusblattes und staunten über die Performance von Holz.

Unmixing hyperspectral Raman images: which method to choose and new insights?

This questions and  more we answered in our newly published paper in Plant methods by analysing spruce wood and Arabidopsis with three different unmixing methods (VCA, NMF and MCR-ALS): Multivariate unmixing approaches on Raman images of plant cell walls: new insights or overinterpretation of results? by Batirtze Prats-Mateu Martin Felhofer, Anna de Juan and Notburga Gierlinger

Junior Science Club 2018

Bereits zum 4. mal waren wir beim Junior Science Club dabei. Diesmal kam eine 5. Klasse des BRG Lessinggasse und war sehr interessiert an „Tricks aus dem Pflanzenreich für die Technik“.

yeeeaaahhhhh HABILITATION

In Dezember 2017 Notburga Gierlinger got her Venia Docendi for „Physical and chemical biology“ and is now allowed to supervise master and PhD students. The habilitation New insights into plant cell walls by vibrational microspectroscopy is published as a review in the journal Applied Spectroscopy reviews.
