Thinking of doing your PhD in Molecular Biology? The International PhD Programme (IPP) on “Epigenetics, Gene Regulation & Genome Stability” is offering talented, young scientists the chance to work at the cutting edge of research.
A 4-year PhD Program involving 3 renowned international institutes. the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics, the Center for Systems Biology Dresden, and the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems.
The subcellular localization and translation of mRNAs are fundamental biological processes. They underlie establishment of body axis, cell growth, cell migration, and synaptic plasticity, which serves as a foundations of learning and memory.
Background. Plants inform their neighbors about pathogen attacks or other kinds of threat. The information is distributed in the plant community via volatiles and/or fungal hyphal networks which connect their roots.
Background. Many insect species feed on plants containing toxic defense compounds without any apparent negative effects. Since many such insects are important agricultural or forestry pests, scientists have been making intensive efforts to discover how insects can overcome chemical defenses.
