In front of colleagues, family and friends Sebastian Nintemann succesfully defended his PhD thesis. The aim of Sebastian's PhD project is to shed light on the spatial organization of glucosinolate biosynthesis; his thesis is entitled 'The spatial organization of glucosinolate biosynthesis - Localization of biosynthetic enzymes from the whole plant to the subcellular level'.

In this project, Sebastian used advanced bioimaging techniques such as fluorophore-tagged proteins and FRET-FLIM, and protein-protein interaction studies were carried out to investigate the subcellular organization of glucosinolate biosynthesis.

Sebastian holds a BSc in Biology and an MSc in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from the University of Bremen. In November 2012, he joined DynaMo Center as a PhD student. His PhD supervisors were Head of DynaMo Professor Barbara Ann Halkier and DynaMo Board member Associate Professor Meike Burow.

Congratulations Sebastian!
