Arne Ludwig works as a Senior Researcher of animal genetics at the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research (IZW) in Berlin, Germany. He studied animal breeding and genetics at the Humboldt University in Berlin (HUB) between 1988 and 1993 and received his Ph.D. degree in genetics in 1997. Then, he worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Department of Fish Biology at the Leibniz Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries. In 2002, he moved to the IZW, leading the DNA research laboratory and the trace lab focused on ancient DNA. He serves as a Lecturer for evolutionary genetics at the HUB since 2005. Ludwig’s research is linked to evolutionary biology and conservation using genetics as bridge between them. He is interested in a broad range of scientific questions, not necessarily specialized in a certain species or method. Nevertheless, in last years, ancient DNA analysis came more and more into his focus.
