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.
CGAE participates on Leibnitz graduate school
Our group is part of an initiative to sequence a flock of insect genomes as part of the Graduate School on Genomic Biodiversity Research (GBR), granted by the Leibnitz association. More information here.
