Research interests/background

Bendrik Baumeister is currently completing a M.Sc by research on Cannabis sativa (hemp). Fundamental research interests are currently focused on understanding variations in lignocellulose compositions within hurd fibres. His research project involves the use of spectrometric approaches such as Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) as well as High performance liquid chromatography (HPLC).

Prior to current full-time study, Bendrik did an apprenticeship as Technician in Berlin. He worked on transgenic production and localisation of carotenoids in Ashbya gossypii as part of his B.Sc. in Biotechnology and he also worked on the production of Taq-Polymerase with transgenic E.coli for the Technical Microbiology Institute at BTU. He gathered work experience in novel essential oil profiles for Melaleuca alternifolia via induced mutations for SCPS at SCU.
