Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Aim of this seminar is to give participants the opportunity to analyze and present novel groundbreaking publications in the field of developmental and behavioral biology of multicellular organisms.
One focus will be how light influences growth and hormone regulation. A second focus covers fields of rhythm biology in animal systems, specifically the influence of light on these rhythms and possible novel photoreceptors. By constructively discussing up-to-date literature, the students will obtain an overview about modern concepts and approaches in these timely research areas.

English will be the language for presentations and discussions.
