Niklas Vockert, current student:

Systems Biology, opposed to my initial expectations, is not to be confused with Bioinformatics. Instead, it is heavily focusing on the employment of mathematical and computational models for analysis of biological processes and systems. One of the main goals and simultaneously a great strength of this program is its’ inderdisciplinarity, making it suitable for people with different backgrounds. As a trained biologist I loved to gain experiences in quantitative approaches without losing contact to the biological side. Although I learned that models are far from perfect (“all models are wrong, some are useful”), this Master program allowed me to find my passion for the quantitative side of Biology. This process was certainly facilitated by the close contact to our teachers thanks to a small group size which enabled a huge knowledge gain in interesting (and to me novel) areas.

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.
