Continuation of the CeBiTec for further eight years
Based on the recommendation of an international reviewer panel, the rectorate of Bielefeld University recently decided on a continuation of the CeBiTec as a central academic institute for further eight years until 2023. The recommendation is based on a new and adapted strategical orientation of the CeBiTec which includes a change from an institute-based structure to the introduction of two main research areas “Large Scale Genomics and Big Data Bioinformatics” and “Metabolic Engineering of Unicellular Systems and Bioproduction”. In the course of this reconstruction, the organisational structure has been complemented by a Scientific Research Board.
