The Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics (MPI-CBG), founded in 1998, is one of 82 institutes of the Max Planck Society, an independent, non-profit organization in Germany. "How do cells form tissues?" has been and still is the question that researchers at MPI-CBG are tackling from different angles. Molecular cell biologists provide insight into basic processes of cellular life and organization. Developmental biologists and geneticists place these functions into the context of tissue development in different model organisms like zebrafish, Drosophila, C. elegans, or mouse.
