Through a large-scale study with so-called geolocators, researchers led by Miriam Liedvogel of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology were able to uncover some of the mysteries surrounding the phenomenon of the blackcap's bird migration. more

The Microbial Evolutionary Dynamics Group at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology in Plön has directly observed the birth of a tRNA gene, using experimental evolution of bacterial populations in the laboratory. more

Computer simulations make important contributions to research into the growth of cancer tumors. At the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology in Plön, Germany, software has now been developed that enables even beginners to deal with this complex topic. more

Western house mice in France have cured a genetic defect by taking up an intact gene from the eastern house mouse. more

Evolution theorists at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology have developed a computer simulation model that can mathematically explain and prove the rare occurrence of cyclic dominance in nature. Mathematical models can thus support ecological research. more

Game experiments with multiple channels: Cooperative behaviour is even more beneficial more

A climate game developed by Max Planck researchers shows that global cooperation can be possible – although not without effort more
