Hello i’m Astrid Böhne

JUNIOR GROUP LEADER

ABOUT ME

I am a molecular evolutionary biologist ­fascinated by the differences between the sexes of a ­species and how they are ­generated. My research ­focuses on the ­identification and ­characterization of sex-determining systems in fishes. I am ­investigating the evolution of these ­systems in the enigmatic cichlid fishes of Lake ­Tanganyika on the genomic and ­transcriptomic level using ­bioinformatics and molecular methods.
