BIOSS Centre for Biological Signalling Studies
Biological signalling processes are the key regulators of cellular activity in all types of cells in living organisms. A better understanding of these processes not only provides solutions to important biological problems, but also has a major impact on medical research and practice. The BIOSS Centre for Biological Signalling Studies in Freiburg uses modern analytical methods and strategies of synthetic biology to study biological signalling processes in a creative and playful way.
The main focus of research at BIOSS is to initiate and promote a dialectic process between scientists using analytical (dissecting) and synthetic (rebuilding) approaches in signalling research.
BIOSS´s signal pathway engineering projects are conducted by an interdisciplinary team of researchers and are supported by a resource centre called the BIOSS Toolbox.
