Our research focus is on deriving a deeper understanding of microbial systems by uncovering biological meaning from genome scale data and through multiscale data integration. All of our projects are in close collaborations with experimental partners. To answer biological questions we use a broad range of bioinformatics, computational, analytical mathematics and statistical methods. A main goal of the Laboratory of Systems and Synthetic Biology is to gain a systems understanding of industrially relevant microorganisms and to translate this knowledge to high-added value applications. Filamentous fungi such as Aspergillus niger form a class of relatively simple eukaryotic organisms that are popular in the bioproduction industry. We aim to develop fungal cell factories using genomics, synthetic biology and metabolic modeling approaches.
All MSc programmes at Wageningen University include an academic oriented internship and thesis research period. The internship is a learning period during which the relationship with professional practice is emphasised. The internship has a subject code and number which you will find in the study handbook. The internship usually lasts about six months. Every Master study programme credits has programme-specific subjects, an academic Master block 12 credits , an internship credits and a thesis credits.
A variety of local internships are available at Munich Re offices across the world, offering work experience and insight into the world of reinsurance. SDLP is a project-based internship that prompts participants to contribute to solving a real-world challenge the organisation itself is facing. Unlike university projects or traditional internship schemes, SLDP assigns tasks without specifying how to execute them. Meet Danielle who interned at our Princeton office. Graduates and students.
