Practical course will be a group course with up to three students. We can only accept students that have fundamental skills in biochemistry as taught in “Chemische Biologie Praktikum 1 (GU Frankfurt)”. Note: This course is designed as a four week course predominantly for students in Chemistry. Students in e.g. Biochemistry who need a six week practical please apply as outlined above and we will try to find extra slots.

Bachelor thesis: Next possibility for bachelor theses in our lab is the second half of 2018.
