Male–male bonds as a key to the evolution of complex social systems

The genome of the gibbons has changed more rapidly and stronger in the course of the evolutionary process. The Northern White-cheeked Gibbon (Nomascus leucogenys), a male specimen in this picture, is one of the five sequenced species. Photo: Tilo Nadler

Research on biodiversity must be expanded

previous next
Infection Research

The section Infection Research researches immundeficiency viruses like HIV, viruses, infecting the respiratory system like flu (influenza) and newly emerging viruses. Additionally illnesses caused by bacteria and parasites are research topics.

Neuroscience

The section Neuroscience researches the basics of cognitive performance in the central nervous system and neurodegenerative illnesses as well as control of movements and the visual perception.

Organismic Primate Biology

Research in the section Organismic Primate Biology is focussed on evolutionary basics of social and mating systems, reproductive mechanisms, ecology, vocal communication, biology of stem cells, and genetics in primates.
