Willkommen am COS Heidelberg

Das Centre for Organismal Studies (COS) Heidelberg hat sich die Erforschung der organismischen Biologie über die Grenzen der biologischen Organisationsstufen hinweg zum Ziel gesetzt. Forschung und Lehre des COS widmen sich der Biologie der Organismen von den molekularen Grundlagen über die Zellbiologie, Entwicklungsbiologie und Physiologie bis hin zu Evolution und Biodiversität sowie Systembiologie und Biotechnologie in pflanzlichen und tierischen Systemen.
