The Center for Molecular Biosciences (ZMB) is an interdisciplinary institute at Kiel University. The ZMB brings together scientists from different disciplines from the Faculties of Medicine, Mathematics and Natural Sciences, and the Faculty of Agriculture and Nutritional Sciences under one roof.

The working groups involved investigate topics in molecular biological and molecular genetic research from a multitude of different perspectives. Genetic variations in medicine are the focus, as are diet-related risk constellations and valuable breeding properties in agricultural crops and animals in Agricultural Science.
