Minerva Center on Lab Evolution

Lab evolution is a powerful paradigm for the study in evolution, in which
(micro) organisms are evolved in a test tube towards various environmental
and genetic challenges.

The new Minerva Center combines forces of 8 labs from Israel, Germany and
France, who employ various aspects of this exciting paradigm.
Spanning the range from bacteria to yeast, worm, and cancer, and combining
cutting-edge experimental techniques with modeling and bioinformatics, the
team will broaden and deepen the understanding of the mechanism and
dynamics of evolution Lab evolution is a powerful paradigm for the study in
