Ger obtained his PhD in biophysics from the University of Leiden. He started using flow cytometry and cell sorting in hemopoietic stem cell research in the Nehterlands. Worked on analytical techniques for characterizing and separating human chromosomes at the Lawrence Liverore National Laboratory. Continued this work at the University of Washington (Seattle) and the Institute for Systems Biology. Developed the MoFlo (Beckman Coulter) and the inFlux (BD) cell sorters.

Currently pursuing automated methods for microbial biome analysis at MarCy, the University of Hawaii and IMO.
