Anne Weber studied biotechnology at the Ernst-Abbe University in Jena. After receiving her Diploma in 2007, she worked shortly in industry before joining the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen. In those years, she gained experience in molecular biology, microbiology, cell biology, and biochemistry. She dealt with forensic DNA analytics, single-use bioreactors, plasmid design and protein expression, purification, and characterization, among many other methods. In September 2017, Anne Weber joined the group to support the laboratory and investigate the genetic manipulation of Physarum polycephalum, opening up new venues for promising future research possibilities. In September 2020, Anne left the group as we moved to Munich.
