More information


A key focus of life science in the DIGS-BB is Biochemistry. A range of fascinating research topics and of state-of-the-art technologies are represented in our graduate school to understand the molecular basis of life. Lipid biochemistry, biochemistry of the cell cycle and of protein turnover, RNA biochemistry, immuno-biochemistry, biochemical diabetology, biochemistry of chromosome-associated proteins, biochemistry of adhesion proteins/polysaccharides and biomatrices, protein folding and much more is worked on in the DIGS-BB, typically with intimate links to the other research areas of the DIGS-BB. Besides all the core biochemical methods from protein purification to enzyme assays, special technologies that are available include lipidomics, proteomics, cryo-EM, microscale thermophoresis, surface plasmon resonance analysis, and high-throughput platforms for identification of interacting molecules.
