Gene and genome duplications and the functional 
divergence of genes
The Research Group Evolutionary Biology is looking for 1 or 2 PhD 
students to be part of the Bioinformatics programme of Yves Van 
de Peer on =91gene and genome duplications and the functional 
divergence of genes=92. The PhD researchers will be part of an active 
and internationally well-known research group, studying different 
aspects of evolutionary developmental biology, with particular 
emphasis on the zebrafish model and cichlid fishes. The position 
is for a period of 2 years, beginning from March 2001 and with a 
salary according to German BAT2a/2 salary scale (about DM 3,000 
or $ 1,500/month). Broad knowledge about computers and 
programming is desirable. The candidate will work in three main 
areas: (i) data base management of large amounts of data 
produced in our own research group as well as those deposited in 
public sequence databases, (ii) implementation of methods for 
comparative genomics aimed at the understanding of the evolution 
of novel gene functions, (iii) phylogenetic tree construction and 
phylogenomics. For more information, contact Dr. Yves Van de
