Rolf Bernander (1956–2014): pioneer of the archaeal cell cycle
To say goodbye to your friend and supervisor is hard, as is losing someone you had hoped would keep contributing to the field for years to come. I will always be grateful to Rolf for teaching me not only how to run a micro array and a flow cytometer, but also how to think like a scientist. One of the first thing Rolf told me is that he is not leaving students behind. He would stand by me all the way to the PhD - and he did.
Goodbye Rolf, and thanks for introducing me to the coolest group of organisms in the world.
