60 years of MPIMG

60 years of MPIMG

The Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics celebrates its 60th anniversary in late May with a scientific symposium and anniversary celebration filled with fascinating science and conversation.

We also take a look at the Institute's key discoveries that have shaped our understanding of the intricacies of the genetic code, its regulation, and its impact on human development, individuality, and disease.

Your PhD at the MPIMG

Are you passionate about understanding the complex network of processes that comprises a cell or even in the entire organism? Are you keen on working with cutting-edge technologies in molecular research?

Apply at the end of each year for a fully-funded PhD position at our International Max Planck Research School for Biology and Computation (IMPRS-BAC). The call is usually open from October to early January. For PhD opportunities outside of the call, please contact our group leaders directly.
The interplay of genes

The interplay of genes

At the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics, we want to understand how the genome functions and how it is regulated, especially during embryonic development and disease.

A characteristic feature of our work is the combination of experimental and computational methods. We use numerous model systems, high-throughput and automated procedures. For data analysis and interpretation we use the tools that bioinformatics provide.
Dahlem Colloquia
The Institute regularly invites internationally renowned researchers to give lectures as part of the Dahlem Colloquia series. Everybody is welcome to attend!

Upcoming Dahlem Colloquium
