Prof Stephan C. Schuster

Biography
After receiving an initial degree in organic chemistry, Stephan C. Schuster moved into Biochemistry and Microbiology during his graduate studies, at the Max-Planck-Institute for Biochemistry in Martinsried, Germany. In his postdoctoral studies at the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, USA, he continued his work on Bacterial Motility and Signal Transduction. Holding group leader positions at the Max-Planck-Institute for Biochemistry in Martinsried, Germany (1994-2000) and the Max-Planck-Institute for Developmental Biology in Tuebingen, Germany (2000-2004), he subsequently moved into the field of Genomics working on vertebrate and microbial projects. In 2005 Stephan C. Schuster was appointed Associate Professor for Molecular Microbial Ecology at Pennsylvania State University (PSU), USA. He currently is a Full Professor working at the Center for Comparative Genomics and Bioinformatics (PSU), and is a founding member of SCELSE (RCE) at Nanyang Technical University (NTU), Singapore. His current research interests include Metagenomics, Evolutionary Biology and ancient DNA.
