With its research focus on bio- and nanotechnology the ISR is an associated partner in the joint project GeneTip “Genetic Innovations as triggers of phase transitions in animal and plant population dynamics”. This project is funded by the German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and focuses on the effects of self-propagating artificial genetic elements (such as Gene Drives) on ecosystems and socio-economic systems (case study:control of the olive fly in the Mediterranean).
