The Research Training Group GenEvo is centred around the core question of how complex and multi-layered gene regulatory systems have evolved. GenEvo investigates which regulatory processes are evolutionarily conserved, which are prone to change and which selective regimes they underlie. By transferring methods developed for model species to other taxa, GenEvo scientists study gene regulatory evolution in a broader intra- and interspecific context. The initiative brings together scientists with expertise in evolutionary and molecular biology to train a new, interdisciplinary generation of PhD students and solve innovative research questions.
GenEvo is funded by the DFG from July 2019 – December 2023.
