• Efficient and successful studies

    Studying is like sports: In order to be successful, you need to use the right techniques and practice regularly. But you also need to schedule breaks and consult a coach from time to time. Check out the ILIAS courses and workshops offered by our Central Student Advisory Service (ZSB), to find out how to study both efficiently and effectively, structure your course content sensibly and use your time well, so you have enough left over to use as you please.

Current news at the university

Afrikanische Bunbarsche (aus dem Tanganyikasee, Malawisee und Victoriasee) mit horizontalen Streifenmustern, die die sich wiederholende (konvergente) Evolution illustrieren.

Evolution does repeat itself after all: How evolution lets stripes come and go

A team of evolutionary biologists from the University of Konstanz, headed by Prof. Dr. Axel Meyer, discovers the genetic basis for the repeated evolution of colour patterns. The findings about the stripes of the especially diverse species of East-African cichlid fishes explain how evolution can repeat itself at record speed. The study is published in the current “Science” magazine.
