Mission Statement

Friedrich Miescher Laboratory

DNA, the molecule that encodes all hereditary information necessary to build an organism, was discovered in Tübingen by the Swiss scientist Friedrich Miescher. The laboratory named after him is dedicated to promoting the work of young scientists and hosts up to five research groups from all areas of biology.

Currently, FML researchers analyze how homologous chromosomes are properly linked and segregated during meiosis; investigate the physical aspects of morphogen gradient formation and self-organization in developing embryos; and study the molecular basis, mechanisms and evolutionary processes underlying adaptation and speciation in natural populations.
