About

The Master in Integrated Systems Biology at the University of Luxembourg enables students to acquire a deeper knowledge of biosciences taking into account new technologies. 

Overview

This involves handling large amounts of data and thus bioinformatics and network analysis are essential elements in this modern education in biosciences. Systems Biology (an extension of Biochemistry and Physiology) wants to understand and model systems: individual cells, organs and whole organisms on the basis of their constituting molecules. It integrates established disciplines in Biosciences and renovates them for the challenges of the future.

Objectives

The Integrated Systems Biology program at the University of Luxembourg enables students to acquire deeper knowledge in biosciences taking into account new computational and high-throughput experimental technologies. This involves the handling of large amounts of data. Thus, bioinformatics, statistics and network analysis are essential elements in this modern education in biosciences. 

The program combines theoretical and practical education: at least 1,450 hours of practical work in computer labs and wet labs within the University’s Department of Life Sciences and Medicine (DLSM), the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine or in partner institutions. At the end of the program, students will be able to:

  • Think on "omics" levels (genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics and imaging).
  • Understand and apply the respective new technologies.
  • Handle and analyse large-scale datasets of biological experiments with bioinformatics and network modelling techniques.
  • Understand and critically analyse recent bio-medical research papers.
  • Plan and execute small research projects.
  • Build bridges between the different disciplines involved in systems biological research (experimental and computational).
