We employ a wide spectrum of methods including several areas of big science that the Helmholtz Association is known for: neutron scattering, nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, up-to-date nanoscience, cryo-electron microscopy, and supercomputing. Our institutes also provide an armamentarium of powerful small-scale tools and techniques that are state-of-the-art.

Synthetic and preparative techniques: molecular biology, genetic engineering, gene targeting in animal models, protein chemistry and purification, crystallization, colloid and polymer chemistry, mass spectrometry
Scattering methods: x-ray crystallography, light scattering, neutron scattering

optical spectroscopy, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, dielectric spectroscopy, differential scanning calorimetry, rheology, Raman and Fourier-transformed infrared-spectroscopy

Imaging techniques:
atomic force microscopy, various kinds of optical microscopy, electron microscopy, quantitative image sequence analysis

Intracellular recording, patch-clamp techniques, bioelectronic hybrids

Theoretical approaches:
statistical physics, advanced computational science
