Juliane studied Biology at the University of Halle (2004-2010).
The focus ofher work is the characterization of the RNA-binding protein Hfq of the plant pathogenic bacterium. In some bacteria, e.g. enteropathogenic E. coli, Hfq contributes to virulence. In contrast, little is known about the role of Hfq in plant pathogenic bacteria. She tries to find sRNAs which associate with this protein and have an influence on the virulence of this pathogen.
