Patrick Bürgel studied at the Eberhard Karls University in Tübingen between 2011 and 2017, where he obtained a master’s degree in molecular and cellular biology of plants. During his studies he gained experience in the fields of molecular genetics, immunobiochemistry and genetic engineering. His master thesis concerned the characterization of EMS-mutagenized Arabidopsis lines with fertilization-relevant mutations in paternal effect genes using forward genetic methods and the mapping of these on the Arabidopsis genome.

As a scientist, Mr. Bürgel subsequently worked on DNA total genome sequencing, bioinformatics and the development of polychrome gametophyte-specific fluorescent markers for confocal microscopy. Mr. Bürgel completed his training as a patent attorney with us between March 2018 and April 2021. In June 2021, Mr. Bürgel took his oath and was admitted as a patent attorney.
