Systems and Synthetic Biology
The Laboratory of Systems and Synthetic Biology (SSB) contributes to elucidate mechanisms underlying basic cellular processes, evolution and interactions among microbes and between microbes and their environment (including the human host). We do so in the context of entire biological systems. We translate the acquired knowledge into biotechnological, medical and environmental applications.
Systems and Synthetic Biology teaches several courses and is involved in iGEM. We also facilitate internships and theses for bachelor and master students.
