Roberto Bonasio will be honored for his outstanding research in the field of epigenetics with the Max Planck-Humboldt Research Award. Bonasio’s studies on ants show how the epigenetic regulation of genes can influence the behavior and appearance of individuals. Connected to the prize is a research project in collaboration with the University of Freiburg, during which he intends to investigate how the brain of the ant queen differs from that of worker ants.
