The Department of Biology is characterized by a wide range of research and teaching activities, ranging from molecules and cells to development and function, biodiversity and conservation. With its numerous externally funded projects and its participation in various national and international alliances, the Department of Biology is extremely strong in research.

The approximately 800 students currently enrolled in the Bachelor's, Master's and Teacher's degree programmes receive a broad biological education and are given early participation in independent research.
