Caro defends her PhD thesis



Congratulations to our PhD student Carolin Wedel!
Today, Caro did an excellent job defending her PhD work on the role of DNA sequence elelments in transcription.
During her very successfull PhD Caro published four papers and became an extremely important part of our group. We will miss her a lot.
