Dr. Martin G. Klotz (==>http://mgkmicro.com) is Professor & Chair of Biological Sciences at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, after holding academic positions at the University of Colorado-Denver (Department of Biology) and the University of Louisville (Departments of Biology and Microbiology & Immunology). A Physics undergraduate Major by training (Universität Rostock, Germany), he earned his doctorate in Biology from the Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena (Germany). Klotz’ graduate and post-doctoral training in Biology (Germany, Hungary, Sweden, USA) ranges from Membrane Biology to Bacterial Genetics to Plant-Microbe Interactions. At UNC Charlotte, he continues to direct his “Evolutionary and Genomic Microbiology Laboratory” to study the molecular underpinnings of ammonia- and methane-oxidizing bacteria with an interest in metabolic reconstruction of key catabolic pathways, the evolutionary history of involved inventory and how this inventory is being regulated. Klotz has served the Microbiology community in many capacities including as an elected officer (Chair, Adviser and Councilor of Division R, Evolutionary and Genomic Microbiology) of the American Society for Microbiology (ASM), as a reviewer (JBact; AEM) and editorial board member (AEM), and he serves on the Editorial Board of Environmental Microbiology. He has co-edited several recent books on Nitrogen Cycle research and is the co-founder of international professional organizations that coordinate collaboration in research on the global Nitrogen and Carbon Cycles. Klotz is the Editor-in-Chief for the Open Access journal “Frontiers in Microbiology“, and a handling Associate Editor for its specialty sections “Evolutionary & Genomic Microbiology” and “Microbial Physiology & Metabolism (==> http://community.frontiersin.org/people/MartinKlotz/11759).
