Comparative Genomics & Animal Evolution (CGAE)


Our group does research in the field of comparative genomics and animal evolution. Topics include: Molecular systematics of arthropods and birds, comparative mitochondrial genomics of Bilateria, comparative genomics of vertebrates and arthropods (evolution of gene families, gene order / exon-intron structure), Evolution of parasitic Crustacea. Teaching includes courses in the frame of master programme "Organismic biology, Evolutionary Biology and Palaeontology", e.g. Molecular Phylogenetics, Comparative Genomics and Bioinformatics.
