DTU Systems Biology takes a multidisciplinary approach to research acting in the interface between biological, chemical and physical science, and particularly between bio science, bio informatics and engineering science. This is enacted through research within a number of key areas of immediate interest, such as disease and health, bio fuels, food biotechnology, and development of new pharmaceuticals and neutraceuticals.
- Systems Biology
- Molecular Biology
- Industrial biotechnology (the cell factory)
- Food biotechnology
- Enzyme technology and protein chemistry
- Chemical biology
The Department’s research will henceforth focus on a quantitative, molecular-biological, systemic approach to medical biology and industrial biotechnology. Our research area spans from genome level to proof-of-concept of methods, products and processes at the levels of organism, cell or molecule. Particularly, our research is built on parallel use of theoretical, computer-based and experimental methods. The increased life science focus contributes to further developing the Department’s excellent research quality. Our world class bioinformatics and systems biological research activities is a vital base to all life science activities at DTU.
The overall research profile is currently reflected in the focus of the following centers and groups:
