A New Understanding of Life
Over the last few decades, biology has developed its natural history approach into that of an experimentally focused discipline. Its goal is the elucidation of structure, function and interactions of macromolecules, as well as understanding entire molecular networks and cell interactions. In daily work, the latest methods and technologies are applied.
In the Master’s degree program the focus is on experimental research. Two thirds of the time are used for practical work (two project theses of 12 weeks and a master thesis of six months duration). The experimental project work is complemented by various lectures. Students choose one of the nine specializations listed below and attend the appropriate courses:
- Ecology and Evolution
- Microbiology and Immunology
- Cell Biology
- Molecular Health Sciences
- Molecular Plant Biology
- Systems Biology
- Molecular and Structural Biology
- Biological Chemistry
