The single common denominator of all the research in UGI is the analysis of big genetic data to address important questions in biology and medicine. Apart from this constraint, UGI group leaders are free to work on any topic their curiosity or passion may lead them to. This results in a diverse, yet coherent, research portfolio including evolutionary and medical human genetics, plant and animal breeding as well as human and wildlife pathogen genetics. 

An important component of our work is the development of novel software for the analysis of big genetic data. We believe in scientific open access and make all our genetic data and methodological tools available to everyone without strings attached. As such, all software we develop is deposited in publicly available repositories.
