Briesetal | 28 September, 2019 (Day Excursion)
Lab excursion, TU Berlin | 1 October, 2019
Theresa Schubert led the Walk an Talk offering diverse perspectives on the forest
and its cultural meaning. Together with biotechnologists from the Institute for Biotechnology | TU Berlin she guided us through the forest of Briesetal
in search of tree mushrooms. This Walk and Talk forms part of a research
project combining cutting edge biotechnological research, citizen science
and artistic research.
Carsten Pohl from TU Berlin showed participants
how to collect samples of fungi and preserve them for further study and
cultivation. At a follow-up lab at the Dept. of Applied and Molecular
Microbiology | TU Berlin on 1 October, participants were shown how
to inoculate Petri dishes with samples for cultivation with the help of TU Biotechnologists Bertram Schmidt and Tom Morris.
