The Master 1 Microbial and Plant Systems Biology from Paris-Saclay University is training a new generation of high-level scientists specialised in the most recent concepts of systems biology through research at an international level.


About the programme

Thanks to recent advances in molecular biology, contemporary biology has seen the advent of "omics" approaches and the possibility to generate large-scale data at different levels of analysis from the genome, transcriptome, proteome, metabolome, epigenome and others. In this context, the so-called systems biology approach aims to integrate these multiple data, to model them and to come up with predictive models of biological behaviour. 

The objective of the Microbial and Plant Systems Biology program from Paris-Saclay University is to acquire a quantitative vision of biological processes such as the dynamic interactions between components of a living system, and also between living systems in interaction with the environment.
