ABSTRACT

The (biological) cell is an enormous complex machinery based on the ordered interaction from atoms to huge macro molecules. All these chemical reactions and non chemical interactions are packed in specific environments which are in many respects separated from the surrounding environment. All these specific interactions are 'learned' over a long time span of about 3 billion years and mirrored in the cellular genome. Not everything of this huge development, or biological evolution, is preserved in this cellular machinery - but the main functionality necessary for the present biosphere. This course should enable the participants to understand important features of this system and try to join this knowledge with established biological or medical experience. Besides these conceptual aspects some exemplary methodological procedures in this field of research are presented as starting points for further explorations, e.g. sequencing technologies / parallel measurements and their corresponding analysis strategies.

The RESEARCH COMMUNITY

This means we try to join learning and research as far as possible. We also encourage successful participants of the courses to consider projects/cooperations in our field of research.
