Methods and Concepts in the Life Sciences

This wikibook aims to give an overview of important methods in the life sciences and the underlying principles. Besides providing theoretical knowledge, it is also meant to include practical advice. The topics are currently based on lectures at Bielefeld University. We would be glad if other content was incorporated in the future.

To create this book, some content was adopted from Wikipedia, so credit goes to the authors listed in the corresponding articles as well. We believe that an exchange between Wikibooks and Wikipedia can benefit both projects.
