Claudius Kratochwil: Integrative Evolutionary Biology

The diversity of form and function that we can observe on all levels of biological complexity is one of the most fascinating phenomena of the living world. We use coloration and pigmentation patterns of tropical fish species (mostly cichlid fishes) as a model to understand the genomic, developmental, and cellular mechanisms that underlie the diversity we see in nature.

We are affiliated to Genomics and Evolutionary Biology and Cell and Tissue Dynamics Research Programs.
