"The GenEvo RTG provides a remarkably well-equipped environment for PhD candidates to grow and advance in their scientific careers through comprehensive guidance from a team of experts in various fields of research.
It is a great opportunity to work within an international group of students to contribute to evolutionary questions that can advance our knowledge on the evolution of gene regulation."
