Having been granted a teacher’s sabbatical leave, he is now working on new ideas. His opinion on what makes teaching successful? Verena Meinecke asked him for TUMstudinews about his views.

    Portrait Jara Obermann, Martin Schappert und Maria Trumpfheller
    "We brew a beer whose color, taste and ingredients can be varied during the brewing process". The TUM's iGEM team has ambitious plans. At this year's biotech competition at the Boston MIT, the students want to pursue new paths in beer brewing. They are trying to modify baker's yeast in such a way that it can produce valuable substances naturally – on its own. Provided everything goes according to plan, the beer will comply with the Bavarian purity standard (Reinheitsgebot).
