Dr. Peter Arndt - Evolutionary Genomics
- 1995 Diploma in Physics at Bonn University
- 1998 PhD in Theoretical Physics at Bonn University
- 1998 - 2003 PostDoc at Cologne University and UC San Diego
- since 2003 Head of the 'Evolutionary Genomics Group' at the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics
- Genome Evolution: integrating processes on all length scales, including insertions, deletions and regional
duplications, isochores, dynamics of repetitive elements
