Welcome to the IfMB

Institute for Microbiology and Biotechnology

The Institute of Microbiology and Biotechnology is dedicated to the study of microorganisms. They represent the numerically largest fraction of living matter on our planet and exhibit great diversity due to their adaptation to a wide variety of habitats.

Our research, which aims at a fundamental understanding of the molecular mechanisms and functions of microbial biochemistry and cell biology, is an important prerequisite for the development of new biotechnological and medical applications. An overview and introduction to our current research projects and topics can be found here.

Our teaching offer includes modules in the courses of study B.Sc. Biology and M.Sc. Microbiology. For more information on specific courses and our institute colloquium, please see here.
