Life Sciences

Research at the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics (MPIMG) focuses on the analysis of genome function and regulation, especially during embryonic development, differentiation, organ development, and disease.

Scientists at the MPIMG study genes and genomes using automated methods, high-throughput technologies and various model systems, followed by computational analysis and interpretation of the results. The combination of experimental and computational methods is a characteristic feature of the work at the Institute.

Founded in 1964 and situated in the southwest of Berlin in Dahlem, the MPIMG employs approximately 350 people and fosters a working culture of interdisciplinarity and innovation.
