Programs

Ecology, Evolution and Environmental Biology

Ecology, Evolution and Environmental Biology introduces students to the study of the interactions of organisms with their environment, diversity of organisms both extant and extinct, adaptations, and mechanisms behind evolutionary change. (Renamed: formerly Ecology).

Integrative Physiology

Integrative Physiology studies the processes that occur within all living organisms including the regulation of functions at the subcellular, cell, tissue, organ and whole organism levels, as well as their interactions and integration. (Renamed: formerly Physiology and Developmental Biology).

Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology

Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology introduces students to molecular structures and processes of cellular life and their roles in the function, reproduction, and development of living organisms. Courses cover a broad range of topics including molecular biology, genetics, genomics, bioinformatics, cell biology, developmental biology, microbiology, and molecular plant genetics. (Renamed: formerly Molecular Genetics).

Immunology and Infection

This program focuses on infectious diseases from both the pathogen and host immune system perspectives.

Paleontology

Paleontology is a basic science concerned with the evolutionary history of life as preserved in the fossil record, examining the patterns and processes of evolution and extinction.
