About the Institute

The Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology consists of three departments: Evolutionary Genetics, Evolutionary Theory, and Microbial Population Biology. 
Basic research is conducted here to explain fundamental processes in evolutionary biology. These include ecological adaptations, the origin of sexuality or the evolution of cooperativity. The range of research work includes ecological, organismal, molecular and theoretical approaches.
