"How do cells form tissues?" has been and still is the question that researchers at MPI-CBG are tackling from different angles. Molecular cell biologists provide insight into basic processes of cellular life and organization. Developmental biologists and geneticists place these functions into the context of tissue development in different model organisms like zebrafish, Drosophila, C. elegans, or mouse.

The MPI-CBG has also invested extensively in Services and Facilities to allow research scientists shared access to sophisticated and expensive technologies.
