Environmental Biotechnology
Max Planck Fellow: Lars Angenent

We are researching the recovery of carbon from wastewater and industrial waste gases using bioprocess engineering. more
Color Pattern Formation
Group leader: Christiane Nüsslein-Volhard

We use the zebrafish (Danio rerio) as a model organism to study pigment pattern formation in a vertebrate. more
Evolution of Pigment Pattern Formation in Danio Fish
Group leader: Uwe Irion

Starting from zebrafish, we investigate the genetic basis of the diversification of color patterns in the group of Danio fish. more
Adaptive evolution of filamentous plant pathogens
Group Leader: Thorsten Langner

Plant pathogens are in constant coevolutionary conflict with their hosts. Selective forces imposed by the host plants have shaped the pathogen genomes and left molecular signatures in virulence related proteins. more
