Munich Centre for Organelle Research (CORE)
The origins of life and the development of different organisms have always represented a key area of research in natural sciences. Now new dynamism is anticipated in the field as decoding of whole genomes proceeds and major progress is made in the analysis of genomes, proteins, and cellular processes. These advanced developments in genomics, proteomics, and metabolomics deliver deeper insights not only into the functioning of organisms, but also into the evolutionary development which underlies the emergence of different species. A critical factor in the development of higher organisms was the integration of unicellular organisms, which also form important constituents of our cells. As a cross-faculty institution, Munich Centre for Organelle Research (CORE) aims to consolidate and expand existing research expertise in these endosymbiotic organelles.
