Systems biology uses a holistic approach to investigate biological systems, from molecular levels to behavior and biomechanics. Bioinformatics provides the infrastructure to address such holistic questions, by using, for example, high throughput analyses and simulation-based models.

The focal research area Bioinformatics and Systems Biology focuses on high throughput analyses of genome, transcriptome, proteome and metabolome data of various research fields such as microbiology, biodiversity and infection biology. With this, the research area Bioinformatics and Systems Biology is centered within the other areas of the Profile Line.

Additionally, institutions of this research area support the digitalization process of research data in all fields of natural sciences and humanities.
