Max Planck Campus Tübingen

Scientists at the Max Planck Campus in Tübingen are studying elementary biological processes ranging from the function of individual proteins to the evolution of species diversity, as well as the function of the human brain. In total, about 700 people from over 45 different countries work at the Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology, the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics, the Opens external link in current windowMax Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems and the Friedrich Miescher Laboratory. The Max Planck Guesthouse is the social centre of the Campus: it contains a cafeteria, library, lecture hall and accommodation. The Planckton nursery provides full-time daycare for babies and toddlers.

Picture 1: A genealogical tree of a sample of influenza (HA1) sequences from May 2006 to end of February 2007. Nodes are colored according to the fitness ranking. The highest ranked node is marked by a black arrow.
Picture 2: A tree the same sequences from picture 1 (colored) and sequences from October 2007 to end of March 2008 (in grey). The algorithm successfully predicts a sequence genetically close and directly ancestral to viruses circulating the following winter.
