Speaker Martin Polz University of Vienna, Department for Microbiology and Ecosystem Science


Martin Polz is a Professor of Microbial Ecology at the University of Vienna. Professor Polz’s broad approach — combining field work, quantitative molecular approaches, genomics, physiology and modeling — has made key contributions to our understanding of the relationships between microbial community structure and function. His recent work includes novel observations of social behavior in natural microbial communities and new tools by which to define microbial populations by gene flow.
