Overview

  • The doctoral program Molecular Biology of Cells is hosted by the Göttingen Center for Molecular Biosciences (GZMB) and is conducted jointly by the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, the Max Planck Institute for Experimental Medicine, and the German Primate Center.
  • The research-oriented program is taught in English and open to students who hold a Master's degree (or equivalent) in the biosciences, chemistry, physics, medicine, or related fields.
  • The program accepts students from diverse areas of previous education who share enthusiasm for studying cells. Training is aimed at achieving a comparative understanding of how cell fate and topology are determined, a critical sense of how to apply comprehensive genomic analysis tools, and the ability to set up and test conceptual models for cellular functions.

Programme Structure

  • Training is aimed at achieving a comparative understanding of how cell fate and topology are determined, a critical sense of how to apply comprehensive genomic analysis tools, and the ability to set up and test conceptual models for cellular functions. A comparative lecture series, typically presented by two or more speakers per session, covers analogous phenomena in different species and even kingdoms.
  •  Methods courses will assist all students in the analysis of genomes, transcription signatures, large scale protein identification, high content analysis of cell morphology and regulation, metabolomics, as well as large scale analysis and quantitative modelling through the participants who specialize in bioinformatics.
