GRK 1721

Breadcrumb Navigation



Research in molecular biology moves towards the analysis of complexity. We meet these developments by implementing a unique and competitive training and research network, RTG1721, to decipher structure and mechanisms of “complex macromolecular systems” in genome biology.

RTG1721 is designed to tackle the next level of structure-function-system analysis of macromolecular complexes by

  • integrating multiscale approaches in life science
  • bridging previously separated disciplines in structural protein science, computational biochemistry and advanced imaging methods
  • training scientists in the emerging field of "hybrid methods"

Study Program

Major components of the RTG1721 study program are advanced methods workshops, seminars and key skills courses to facilitate cross-disciplinary research and development of project specific hybrid methods.

Research Program

The RTG1721 allows conducting cross-disciplinary projects in order to address the structure, mechanism and molecular regulation of transient and modular macromolecular complexes in genome biology.

Credit System

We offer an innovative credit based training and mentoring program with required and optional activities that allows the doctoral candidates to tailor their curriculum according to individual needs and project requirements.
