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 practiceThe 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.
