Biology (BIOLO)

Biology covers all aspects of life science, from subcellular molecular processes, via organisms to whole ecosystems.

Basic scientific challenges in the area concern the way in which genetic instructions influence the development of organisms, which interact and constitute a complex biological system. This is knowledge which is strongly requested from society. It influences a wide range of societal issues from the use of gene technology for altering and affecting the function of various organisms, to questions of animal welfare in modern farming and the management of species and ecosystems for biological conservation purposes.

Within Biology at IFM, research is organised in research groups, which are ad hoc associations of people working on a common scientific theme. The groups are dynamic, and can change their composition as deemed suitable by the involved people.
