Research at SILS

At the Swammerdam Institute for Life Sciences, research is focused on a number of central themes. Among these themes are gene expression, the structure of DNA molecules and chromatin, protein-protein interactions, protein structure-function relations and signal transduction processes, as they take place in man, animal, plant and micro-organism. Within the institute, this leads to exchange of information and extension of research over the borders of different disciplines.

Our researchers adhere to The Netherlands Code of Conduct for Scientific Practice (Principles of good scientific teaching and research).
