“It takes a village to raise a child” – but in this case, we celebrate a hard working Angelica “Angel” and a supportive family! Well done lovely lady, we are all very proud of you! Especially your “doctor father”, Frank Reith, is amazed by your fantastic work!
New paper just published in Ecology!
In research spanning Australia and part of Antarctica Delgado, Reith, Dennis, Hamots, Powell, Young, Singh and Bissett are looking at drivers of soil community composition on the continental scale.
Decade long close collaboration of MHM-Group with Prof DH Nies’ group at the University of Halle-Wittenberg in Germany is bearing important fruit.
After years of careful planning and experimentation three ground-breaking papers now reveal the biochemistry of how the aurophilic (i.e., gold-loving) bacterium Cupriavidus metallidurans detected to date on natural gold particles from sites on four continents, deals with gold toxicity and produces gold nanoparticles, the building blocks of secondary gold, in the processes.

Science is wonderful – let´s talk about it! Especially if it is about gold!
Frank will talk about his work experiences and the fascination of gold , interviewed by Radio Adelaide.

Dear friends and colleagues,
thanks for reading the site and commenting back to me! It was a great pleasure to have so many visitors on our prelimnary blog. The blog is now complete (as much as it can be at the moment). I am looking forward to further interactions with all of you.
I will keep you updated on our research!
Till next time,
all the best as ever,
