Equipment and Facilities

The facilities at the Max-Planck-Institute for Evolutionary Biology include various laboratories, a lecture theatre, a practical room, an extensive library, a cafeteria and a computer centre. 

Furthermore, there is a facility for keeping wild and laboratory mice, the so-called mouse house. There is also an experimental facility for conducting population ecology experiments with wild mice.

The equipment at our institute includes:
