Über den Arbeitgeber

Basic research at the Max Planck Institute for Biology Tübingen addresses fundamental questions in microbial, algal, plant and animal biology, including the interaction between different organisms. The approaches we use range from biochemistry, cell and developmental biology to evolutionary and ecological genetics, functional genomics and bioinformatics. The institute currently has five active departments, each led by a Director: Protein Evolution (Andrei Lupas), Microbiome Research (Ruth Ley), Integrative Evolutionary Biology (Ralf Sommer), Algal Development and Evolution (Susana Coelho), and Molecular Biology (Detlef Weigel).

In addition, we host three independent research groups outside the departments, which extend and complement the departments’ scientific directions. Several core facilities provide advanced technical support,  each being equipped with state-of-the-art instruments.

Affiliated with the Max Planck Institute for Biology Tübingen is the Friedrich Miescher Laboratory as an institution of the Max Planck Society, with four independent research groups. 

Research

The variety of topics investigated by scientists at the MPI for Biology Tübingen is extensive, although all subjects have a biological theme. The cutting-edge technology in molecular and cellular biology and computational science available at the institute is enabling scientists to gain increasing insight into cellular and developmental processes. A highly dynamic and interdisciplinary approach is applied from the molecular level to cells, tissues, and the whole organism.

Facilities

The core facilities of the MPI for Biology Tübingen are the Electron Microscopy, Light Microscopy, NMR Spectroscopy, the Genome Center, X-Ray Crystallography and the Mass Spectrometry.

The facilities offer a broad range of methods and techniques and provide a motivating and helpful environment where researchers/users are trained and supported throughout their projects.

Mission Statement

Contemporary biology covers an enormous spectrum, from research on basic cellular processes to predictions about the consequences of global change. But this spectrum is not always continuous: while there is abundant evidence that organisms can adapt to their natural environment, it is often not obvious what the underlying genetic, molecular and developmental processes are. Similarly, while we have an increasing appreciation for the complexities of population genetic events, the underlying ecological factors are often unclear. A major difficulty in answering these questions stems from the fact that many of these processes operate on different spatial and temporal scales. At the MPI for Biology Tübingen, we aim to bridge these different scales, by studying fundamental aspects of prokaryotic and eukaryotic biology both in the laboratory and in natural settings. To this end, we make use of approaches that range from biochemistry, cell and developmental biology to evolutionary and ecological genetics, functional genomics and computational biology.
