Lab course

  • Twice a year
  • One week lab courses
  • Topics:
    • Seminars with different topics
    • Quantitative mass spectrometry
    • Microscopy
    • SDS-Page, Western Blot
    • Cell culture

Supervised by the PhD. students of the Klingmüller group, the students perform the experiments, analyze their data and write a protocol about it. At the end, they will obtain a grade evaluating their overall work.

Master Major Systems Biology

Following the identification of the parts of biological systems, the interdisciplinary field of Systems Biology combines quantitative data generation and mathematical modeling to elucidate general principles governing emergent properties of complex systems that give rise to their biological functions. Due to the non-linearity of relationships of quantitative data in biological networks it is not possible to deduce function directly from properties of individual molecules but rather by considering the dynamic quantitative interplay of systems components. Major open questions are: How is information processed and linked to cell fate decisions? How is specificity achieved? Which parameters determine the robustness of biological systems? The approach of Systems Biology is fueled by tremendous advances in high-throughput quantitative omics-type data generation and in single cell analysis in combination with the development of suitable mathematical modeling tools.
