Welcome to BeGenDiv!

BeGenDiv is a central hub for scientists of the Berlin Brandenburg Institute of Advanced Biodiversity Research (BBiB) who apply genomics and bioinformatics to answer cutting-edge questions about the ecological and evolutionary processes shaping biodiversity.

Our aims are:
-to advance biodiversity science through research and education in genomics and bioinformatics
-to serve as a forum for the exchange of new knowledge through seminars and our annual Genomics Symposium
-to serve as a nucleus for collaborative research
-to provide state-of-the-art facilities to all consortium members.

If you are interested in working with us, please see the Collaboration page.

Six institutes joined forces as a Consortium to found the center:
