Cell and Molecular Biology

Cellular and molecular biology is central to all aspects of biology. While studies involving DNA molecules and cell operation were once thought of as strictly lab-oriented, now they involve a variety of other disciplines, including applied medicine, ecology and evolutionary biology. Our students have a wide variety of options for entering the world of cellular and molecular biology including research on insect, cell and molecular biology 
development, human brain cancer, loon systematics and evolution, and microbial action.

Students interested in this area might consider any of the Biology Department majors, especially Biology, Biochemistry, Physiology, and Microbiology.

We also have a special program in diagnostic Genetics (administered jointly, listed in the Bulletin under Clinical Sciences) that may be of interest
