We have two major foci in research and teaching, namely 'Organismic Biology' (Botany, Zoology, Ecology, and Landscape Ecology and Nature Conservation) and 'Cellular and Molecular Biology' (Microbiology, Molecular Biology, Physiology, Biochemistry, and Genetics). Both are integral components of the University's research topics 'Environmental Change: Responses and Adaptation (ECRA)' and 'Proteomics and Protein Technologies in Infection Biology, Environmental Microbiology and Biotechnology'.

There are research and teaching cooperations with members of the following institutions within this university: Earth Sciences, Social Sciences, Medicine, Biochemisty, and Pharmacy.

The number of students with majors in biological sciences currently accounts to 750. We have currently 16 full professors in the Department of Biology whose expertise cover all relevant areas.
