Molekulare Chronobiologie, Institut für Medizinische Psychologie
This project is all about chronobiology. One of the clocks that we study controls development in the tiny, beautiful worm, C. elegans. By making mutant animals that develop slower or faster, we can eventually show how this developmental clock mechanism works. Is it like a circadian clock or is it something completely new? This project would take a student through molecular genetic methods as well as analysis of behavioural timing.
