Dr. Daniel Schindler


Daniel Schindler is currently working as postdoctoral research associate in the lab of Dr Patrick Cai. He obtained his Ph.D. in Biology at the Philipps-Universität Marburg in Germany, at the LOEWE Center for Synthetic Microbiology under Prof Torsten Waldminghaus. His research focused on the construction of synthetic secondary chromosomes to analyse chromosome maintenance systems in Escherichia coli.

His current research projects are straightened to the design, construction and characterization of neochromosomes in baker´s yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. In his opinion there are many open questions in the field of chromosome research and recent progress in Synthetic Biology can provide answers through construction of synthetic chromosomes.

In his free time, Daniel enjoys outdoor sports (climbing, mountaineering and running), travelling and good food.
