A few years ago Theresa also became an active blogger with her main project being Das Gen der Woche, a blog which regularly features a specific gene, often after it made the headlines for some reasons. Her blog articles explain the functions and importance of these selected genes in a non-technical language. When Theresa is not doing or writing about research, she enjoys travelling. You can find some of her photographs here.
