Life Sciences

Our biology portfolio covers more than just the traditional subject areas such as zoology, genetics or microbiology. By focusing on modern topics and issues such as epigenetics, biotechnology and stem cell research, it also takes into account the demands and requirements of a dynamic and ever-changing scientific market.

In addition, our associated book programme for these subjects is complemented by first-class journals, such as Biochemical Chemistry. Founded in 1877, this publication is one of the oldest journals in Germany.

Immerse yourself in our broad spectrum of publications in the field of biology to become better informed on the current state of biological research.
