The interdisciplinary connections amongst all the Life Sciences departments on the Weihenstephan Campus enable the exploration of the entire life cycle of foodstuffs and raw materials. Researches at Weihenstephan examine the value creation chain from genetic and biological fundamentals, through production and processing to consumption. The close networking of the research disciplines is the trump card of the Center of Life and Food Sciences Weihenstephan.
