Here, we list events targeted at the general public.
You can find all upcoming research seminars taking place at the Institute in the Seminar Schedule.
State-of-the-art microscopes can image several complete 3D data sets per secons, yet we look at the images on flat screens. The talk will show how virtual reality can be used to analyse microscopy data.
On 27 April 2017, our Institute will be open to interested girls from 10:00-12:00: You can join a guided tour through the building, see, how we work, and get information on career opportunities from our staff. You can find further information on this event at the official website at www.girls-day.de. Please also use this website to register online.
The presentation will start at 10:00 in the MPI-CBG auditorium. Hear from female scientists about their everyday work and ask your questions: What is it like to be a scientist? Can you do research and have a family? Afterwards, there will be tours through the building: See zebrafish, worms, and fruit flies, have a look at the labs and see how people work!
Girls’ Day, an initiative of the Federal Ministries for Education and Research (BMBF), and for Family Affairs, the Elderly, Women and Youth (BMFSFJ), was designed to motivate and encourage particularly girls to seize their career options and to decide in favour of a qualified vocational training or degree. Subsequently, they choose an occupation even in professional fields that are presently not typically female.
Lennart Hilbert and Pavel Vopalensky will introduce you to the evolution of eyes in different species and explain the molecular mechanisms underlying visual sight.
You will then look at zebrafish embryos under the microscope.
Please register for this event via the official JUNIORDOKTOR program.

Epigenetics try to understand the mechamisms that activate the part of the genome that is relevant for a certain cell type or life cycle - like bookmarks in the book of life. The talk also introduces ongoing Epigenome research projects.
