Education at the Laboratory of Systems and Synthetic Biology

The Laboratory of Systems and Synthetic Biology offers education via courses at the bachelor and master level of different study programmes along with challenge-based education. The Laboratory also participates in courses organised by other chair groups and in postgraduate courses. Additionally, the Laboratory offers a variety of BSc- and MSc-thesis projects, MSc Research practices, and facilitates and supervises internships.


There is no better way to learn research than by doing research. Join our chair for a BSc or MSc thesis and/or Research practice. We offer projects within our four research themes that can involve computational (dry), experimental (wet) or a combination of both (moist) approaches.
