Researchers in the Department of Biology expand our knowledge base in a variety of fields. These fields range from cell and molecular biology through ecology and the environment to physiology and paleontology and combine many different methods to understand biological processes. Leading-edge, collaborative research is done in four major areas:

Our research involves studies in animal and plants and uses both model (e.g. Drosophila, Synechocystis, Mouse, …) and non-model species.

A range of state-of-the-art research resources are the basis for diverse and collaborative research and include:
