The Center for Biotechnology – CeBiTec – is one of the largest and most prominent central academic institutions at Bielefeld University. The CeBiTec bundles activities and interests of research groups focusing on various aspects of biotechnology within the Faculties of Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Technology. Its mission is to encourage and to support the development of innovative research crossing discipline boundaries.
Since its foundation in 1998 three institutes, the Institute for Bioinformatics (IfB), the Institute for Genome Research and Systems Biology (IGS), and the Institute of Biochemistry and Bioengineering (BioChemTech) have been established under the roof of the CeBiTec. The availability of comprehensive technological infrastructure as being provided by CeBiTec’s Technology Platforms is crucial for a successful scientific work.
