The globalisation of the world economy is a process which is changing living conditions for most people. There has, however, been comparatively little research into the effects of globalisation on and in developing countries. Development research focuses more on microeconomic issues, rather than systematically linking knowledge with the globalisation process. RTG 1723 "Globalisierung und Entwicklung" ["Globalisation and Development"] now aims to unite these two strands of globalisation and development research. The projects undertaken will examine how economic globalisation affects individuals in developing countries, as well as how these individuals react and how their responses help to shape globalisation.

"The dose makes the poison." Paracelsus' words still influence medicine and biology today. Organisms react incredibly inconsistently to external stimuli: whether with lasting damage, continuous resistance, or even increased vitality. The RTG 1715 "Molekulare Signaturen adaptiver Stressreaktionen" ["Molecular Signatures of Adaptive Stress Responses"] has set itself the goal of investigating the molecular mechanisms underlying this multitude of contradictory responses to stress, and to use the improved understanding of these reactions to develop new approaches to resistance and regeneration.

RTG 1721 "Integrated Analysis of Macromolecular Complexes and Hybrid Methods in Genome Biology" is dedicated to a key topic in molecular biology: complex and dynamic macromolecular systems. In order to comprehend these structurally and mechanistically, the Research Training Group aims to communi
