New joint Master's program in Evolutionary Systems Biology

The University of Vienna and the University of Veterinary Medicine Vienna now offer a joint Master's program in 'Evolutionary Systems Biology'.
The program's students will
  • Learn how to understand and handle modern “- omics” data sets.
  • Develop key computational skills and delve into biological modelling.
  • Combine experimental “wet-lab” technologies with quantitative “dry-lab” methods.
  • Apply these skills to questions arising from evolutionary biology, development, comparative genomics, and systems biology.

  • For more information, please visit the program's web page!
