Gesa Hillmer, current student:

The nice thing about the Systems Biology program in Heidelberg is that you have practical courses where you can apply the things learned in the lectures. And as there are only few students in the program (9 in my year) the teacher-to-student ratio is very high, which guarantees a lot of interaction. The practicals are wet-lab as well as dry-lab based. This way you get insights into both parts of Systems Biology, can therefore understand and appreciate the two complementary domains and potentially work as a middleman joining scientists from both fields. Additionally you can better decide in which domain you would prefer to work – or if you would like to combine them.

Semester 3

In this semester you should undertake two lab rotations, working for 6 – 8 weeks on a small project in a laboratory of choice, attending seminars in that laboratory and writing a lab report.

Semester 4

The Master's thesis work lasts 6 months. You undertake a laboratory research project relevant to the Major Systems biology, write a thesis, and defend it in an oral presentation. The seminar is usually held in the research group where you do your Master's thesis.
