The aim of the Institute of Experimental Genetics (IEG) is to understand the mechanisms of human disease, especially in diabetes mellitus. In addition to genetics, the IEG explores the effects of environmental factors on disease pathogenesis. The German Mouse Clinic (GMC) is part of the IEG and internationally leading in systemic phenotypic analysis of genetic and environmental factors. A particular focus is on the development of databases and the application of modern bioinformatics methods to gain new insights from large data sets. The IEG is part of the Helmholtz Diabetes Center (HDC) and partner of the German Center for Diabetes Research.
