Molecular Geo- and Palaeobiology Lab at the Dept. of Earth & Environmental Sciences (Section Palaeontology) and GeoBioCenterLMU of the LMU in Munich.
Geobiology investigates the present and past interactions between geo- and biosphere and the evolution of organisms – processes which have shaped the Earth and its biodiversity. Molecular Paleobiology studies the rates and patterns of evolution, integrating data from the living organisms and the fossil record, primarily using new tools of molecular biology. Such studies promise to reveal the secrets of life, its origin and evolution, and its present and past functions on our planet.
In our lab, we are focussing on the biodiversity and evolution of marine invertebrates and on the evolution of biomineralisation.
