The thriving city of Berlin is a hotspot for excellent research with four universities and several Max Planck, Leibniz, Helmholtz and Fraunhofer institutes that attract a world-class scientific community.

The Campus Berlin-Dahlem with the FU, the Zuse Institute Berlin (ZIB) and the MPIMG harbors a significant number of groups working at the interface of life sciences (molecular biology, genome research) and formal sciences (mathematics, computer science). The mathematical and computational approaches to study biological questions are manifold, covering mathematics, statistics, and computer science. The unique concentration at FU and MPIMG offers an exceptional opportunity to familiarize students with the breadth of formal methods in computational biology and scientific computing and exposes them to the scope of questions these tools can be applied to.

Quiet Berlin-Dahlem provides a contrast to buzzing inner city life.
