International PhD program in protein biotechnology


BioToP offers an inter- and multi-disciplinary research-based doctoral education at the interface of basic and applied science in the field of protein biotechnology.



BioToP provides comprehensive and thorough up-to-date research training in the fields of

  • structure-function analysis, engineering and design of proteins
  • protein synthesis, targeting and post-translational modifications
  • expression systems and cell factories
  • bioinformatics and molecular modelling

Integration of this complementary expertise into a network will foster a translational approach, involving both basic and applied research, with the ultimate goal of rational improvement of industrially relevant protein expression systems for their use in biotechnological processes.
