Mission The Swammerdam Institute for Life Sciences is bringing together more than 200 researchers with knowledge from many areas of science, amongst others: biology, (bio)chemistry, (bio)physics, medicine and data analysis- and information technology. In these areas research is carried out at the molecular, cellular, and organismal level. The aim of SILS is to understand the functioning of a living cell. Biological processes are studied at the level of molecule, cell, cellular network and organism. SILS uses the research disciplines of Molecular Cell Biology, Microbiology, Plant Science, and Neurobiology while supported by Life Science Technologies. As such SILS is a multidisciplinary research institute. In its research SILS intends to make optimal use of amongst others genomics and microscopy technologies. Integrating the knowledge from different areas is essential to reach our final goal: understanding life processes. Therefore, Systems Biology has become a focal point of attention from 2004 onwards.
