Doctoral Programme Biointeractions from basics to application (BioApp)

The doctoral college Biointeractions - from basics to application (BioApp) aims to contribute to the understanding of interactions between different prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms, with plants and animals, as well as with their abiotic environment (from the species to the domain level). These interactions are still largely unexplored, although they are extremely relevant for natural ecosystems, and also significantly influence biotechnological processes, from wastewater treatment, biogas production and biological remediation of contaminated sites to agrobiotechnology.

This summer semester, we had a different kind of lecture for the BioAPP DK students: instead of focussing on scientific discussions or on pitfalls of data analysis strategies, we put together a small webinar about career choices, and the difficulties (life) scientists have to face.

With all the possibilities comes the fear that using CRISPR-Cas9 extensively across disciplines might lead to even bigger biological and ethical problems.
