Institute for Biology I (Zoology) – Driever Lab
University of Freiburg
Research in the laboratory focuses on the analysis of developmental mechanisms at the molecular level. We use the zebrafish as model system to combine genetics, genomics, signaling research, experimental embryology and optogenetics to achieve a quantitative understanding of complex signaling and regulatory networks in development. One focus is on nervous system development, aiming to understand neuronal differentiation as well as specific aspects of circuit formation and function.
