Networks of Gene Activity Control Organ Development

25/6/19 Researchers from our faculty have decoded the genetic programmes that control the development of major organs in humans and other selected mammals – rhesus monkeys, mice, rats, rabbits, and opossums – before and after birth. Using next-generation sequencing technologies, the molecular biologists at from the ZMBH from the group of Henrik Kaessmann (image) analysed the brain, heart, liver, kidney, testicles, and ovaries.

MSc Molecular Biosciences - Application

Procedure

We welcome applications from students who have, or expect to have, completed a relevant Bachelors degree with an above-average* grade by the end of the academic year preceding the desired semester of entry.

*Guidelines: German system: at least 2.4; British system, 2.1 or above. Degree subjects should generally be focussed on some aspect of biological sciences, but students with other relevant degrees, for example in chemistry or physics, may be considered for some Majors (see their web links for more information).

Application: gateway to the application (usually opens around the first of February)

You can follow the process, see below.

The deadline will  15th of March 2020

Programme Start: 1 October, 2019
