Me after being productive

Hi, my name is Torsten Waldminghaus, and I'm PI of the Waldminghaus Lab. I was let to OpenWetWare by google years back, searching for certain protocols. I benefit a lot from people sharing their protocols on the internet and thought it might be a good idea to also let the world participate on my wisdom and experince. If you still want to you can email me through OpenWetWare. Below I'll describe a bit more about myself and the stuff I'm interested in.



  • 2007-2011: Postdoc at the Department of Cell Biology, Institute for Cancer Research, The Norwegian Radium Hospital, Oslo (Norway) in the lab of Kirsten Skarstad
  • 2004-2007: PhD at the Ruhr-University Bochum (Germany) PhD-thesis: ‘RNA-thermometers in bacteria’ in the lab of Franz Narberhaus
  • 2002-2004: Studies in bioinformatics at the University of applied science Berlin (Germany) Master-thesis: ‘In silico analysis and selection of RNA secondary structures’ at the Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology under supervision of Volker Patzel
  • 1999-2002: Studies in biology at the Ernst-Moritz-Arndt-University Greifswald (Germany) Diploma-thesis: ‘Investigations on the expression of clpX in Bacillus subtilis’ at the Division for Microbial Physiology and Molecular Biology in the lab of Michael Hecker
  • 1996-1999: Basic studies in biology at the University of Potsdam (Germany)

Grants and Awards

  • 2008-2010: Two year postdoc grant of the German Research Council (DFG)
  • 2008: Ruth Massenberg Prize of Ruhr-University Bochum (Germany) for outstanding PhD thesis
  • 2008: Travel grant of FEMS
  • 2006: Travel grant of Ruth und Gert Massenberg Stiftung

Research interests

In general I like bacteria and complex systems.

A bit more detailed I enjoy working on:

  • Regulation of replication in bacteria
  • Synthetic chromosomes
  • Searching funny patterns on chromosomes or in proteins [1]
