Laboratory facilities

The Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology (MPI-EVA) has approximately 1,231 square meters of molecular biology laboratory space, with the state of the art in scientific supplies and equipment. Shared equipment distributed among lab groups ensures efficient use of and access to equipment. We currently have laboratory groups focusing in the areas of:

  • Rates and patterns of DNA evolution
  • Rates and patterns of gene expression evolution
  • Rates and patterns of protein evolution
  • Great ape population genetics
  • Molecular anthropology
  • Ancient DNA methods and analysis
  • Neandertal genomics
  • Cell culture systems
  • Analysis of transgenic mice
