The Pre-Symposium is publicly accessible and organized by the Doctoral Programmes “BioTop” & Molecular Enzymology”.

The programme can be found here.


Participation is free of charge. However, due to organizational reasons we ask all participants to register via the following link until April 14, 2017:

The coffee break after the pre-symposium is included and sponsored by the two Doctoral Programmes.


About BioToP

The PhD program BioToP is a research-based doctoral education at the interface of basic and applied science in the field of protein biotechnology at the Vienna Institute of Biotechnology (VIBT) at BOKU, Vienna.

BioToP provides comprehensive training in the fields of

  • structure-function analysis, engineering and design of proteins,
  • protein synthesis, targeting and post-translational modifications,
  • expression systems and cell factories as well as
  • bioinformatics and molecular modelling.

Funded by: Austrian Science Fund (FWF) and BOKU.


About Molecular Enzymology

The DK Molecular Enzymology is an international doctoral studies program offered jointly by the University of Graz and the Graz University of Technology since 2005. Our research program aims to understand the molecular structures, mechanisms and the cellular functions of enzymes important to very broad aspects of biology.

The program is interdisciplinary in nature with prominent contributions from

  • biochemistry
  • biotechnology
  • molecular and cellular biology
  • microbiology
  • organic chemistry
  • structural biology
