Systems Biology and Metabolomics from University of Würzburg focuses on the reprogramming mechanisms of the metabolism in association with phenotypic, physiological or behavioural changes including disease development.  


At Systems Biology and Metabolomics from University of Würzburg the two major topics are composed of two theory modules as well as a practical course unit each. Further research training is provided in a selected field of interest, and the students are actively involved in ongoing research projects and learn to independently plan and perform both theoretical and experimental work and finally, to summarize and discuss the results obtained in the thesis.
