The research of Kasper Urup Kjeldsen at Center for Geomicrobiology at the Department of Bioscience / Section for Microbiology is sponsored by the Danish National Research Foundation and the Danish Hydrocarbon Research and Technology Centre.

  • TeachingMolecular Microbial Ecology (Graduate/Honors-course, 5 ECTS). Theoretical and practical introduction to the molecular analysis of microbial communities in the environment. 
  • The deep biosphere - an enormous and unexplored ecosystem. Center for Geomicrobiology is devoted to the study of microorganisms inhabiting the deep biosphere. These microbes constitute up to one third of global living biomass, are key players in the global carbon and sulfur cycles, and affect ocean and atmospheric chemistry and Earth´s climate via their activities. However, the identities, activities, and the mechanisms governing the distributions of these microbes remain unknown.
