Laboratory for Biological Geochemistry LGB

About us

Established in 2012, the LBG consists of a fluctuating number of Senior Scientists, Postdocs, PhD- and Master students working on research projects at the interface between isotope geochemistry, mineralogy and biology. Currently, the LGB is engaged in research themes such as:

  • Biogenic carbonate paleo-proxy reliability
  • Metabolic processes in symbiotic marine organisms (and how these processes are affected by global climate change)
  • Plant photosynthesis and starch formation
  • Brain metabolism

The LGB is equipped with a NanoSIMS N50L instrument.
