Integrated Analysis of Macromolecular Complexes and Hybrid Methods in Genome Biology
DFG: Research Training Group 1721
The Research Training Group GRK 1721 aims to decipher structure and mechanisms of complex macromolecular systems in genome biology. It is designed to tackle the next level of structure-function-system analysis of macromolecular complexes by integrating multiscale approaches in life science. Previously separated disciplines in structural protein science, computational biochemistry and advanced imaging methods are combined to train scientists in the emerging field of "hybrid methods". This will allow conducting cross-disciplinary doctoral projects in order to adress the structure, mechanism and molecular regulation of transient and modular macromolecular complexes in genome biology. GRK 1721 offers an innovative credit based training and mentoring program tailored to individual needs and project requirements of each doctoral candidate. A core part of the research training will be advanced methods workshops to facilitate crossdisciplinary research and development of project specific hybrid methods.
