Magdeburg Centre for Systems Biology

The Magdeburg Centre for Systems Biology (MaCS) was founded in 2007 as a joint project of the University of Magdeburg and the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems. MaCS is one of four German research centres in Systems Biology that have been funded with financial support of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).

MaCS focusses on the development of new approaches in systems biology and their application to the analysis and reconstruction of molecular networks involved in signal processing and regulation of cellular processes. The goal is to establish new, broadly applicable concepts for modeling and systems analysis with reliability at different levels of molecular and functional complexity. Various pro- and eukaryotic model systems with relevance in basic, biomedical, or biotechnological research are investigated.
