Halocafe mug

Halocafe mug

The Halocafe is, of course, an institution in itself. The first floor tea-room for the Department of Membrane Biochemistry, Max-Planck-Institute, for many years. The room is appropriately decorated with a huge halobacterium and other exotic objects hanging from the ceiling. The walls covered with pictures of people and past events. For those who have worked in the department, and can read german, the text on the coffee mug pictured above will make sense. Sadly, the department closes at the end of 2010, and an important centre of haloarchaeal research comes to an end. Dez. 2010, MDS.
