The research activities of the Biology Department are diverse, and include molecular and physiological studies at cellular and organismal level as well as ecological research focusing on populations, communities and ecosystems. Although many research groups carry out in-depth analyses on specific model organisms, the diversity of life forms studied by the department as a whole is impressive. Our studies are embedded in a dense network of international contacts with universities, research institutes and companies. The department attracts many students and hosts approximately 250 staff members. It has a yearly operational research budget of approximately 1500kEUR for both fundamental and applied research.
