The Gruenstaeudl lab conducts research at the intersection of genetics , bioinformatics , and plant evolution . We have a strong focus on computational biology and love to analyze large data sets . One of our specialties is analyzing the evolutionary history of different plant lineages - to that end, we often develop novel software tools and apply them on genomic data sets.

Students are actively involved in all research projects and, thus, learn valuable skills and techniques , especially in molecular and computational biology. We are always excited to hear about students who wish to join and grow their skills with us!
