Our group “Human Biology and primate Evolution” investigates the molecular evolution of humans using state-of-the art experimental and computational methods. Our focus is on differences in gene regulation, evolution of transcription factors and non-coding RNAs and their influence on the evolution of the human brain, its development and functions.
