Scientists from the Leibniz Institute DSMZ are once again one of the most cited researchers in the world

Private lecturer Dr. Markus Göker

For the fifth time in a row, private lecturer Dr. Markus Göker from the Leibniz Institute DSMZ-German Collection of Microorganisms and Cell Cultures GmbH is on the list of the world‘s most cited researchers in the field of microbiology. In Germany, bioinformatician Markus Göker is one of the nine researchers whose publications were most frequently cited as references by other researchers. He is the only Braunschweig scientist on the list in this area. His scientific publications have been cited 2,234 times within the last year.

Markus Göker is responsible for the LPSN and TYGS databases

The bioinformatician Göker heads the phylogenomics working group and is an expert in the taxonomic databases LPSN [List of Prokaryotic names with Standing in Nomenclature] and TYGS [Type (Strain) Genome Server] at the DSMZ. Both databases are part of the DSMZ Digital Diversity platform. The fact that the award was given in the microbiology category shows the importance of bioinformatics in this field within the life sciences. In addition, this also underlines the role of the DSMZ as an interdisciplinary research infrastructure facility.

The Leibniz Association focuses on knowledge transfer, especially with the Leibniz research museums. It advises and informs politics, science, business and the public. Leibniz institutions maintain close cooperation with universities – in the form of the Leibniz Science Campi, with industry and other partners at home and abroad. They are subject to a transparent and independent assessment process. Due to their national importance, the federal and state governments jointly support the institutes of the Leibniz Association. The Leibniz Institutes employ around 20,500 people, including 11,500 scientists. The total budget of the institutes is 2 billion euros. www.leibniz-gemeinschaft.de
