The Animal Venomics workgroup focuses on the decoding, evolutionary biology, biochemical characterization and translational research of animal venoms using state-of-the-art -omics methods and biotechnology. As a collaborative project of the Justus Liebig University Giessen (Institute of Insect Biotechnology) and the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology Giessen (Bioresources Division), the members of the group work closely with colleagues e.g. from the Senckenberg Museum in Frankfurt as part of the LOEWE Center for Translational Biodiversity Genomics. The laboratories and offices are primarily located in the Fraunhofer IME new building at Ohlebergsweg.
