Mastering Biology

Animal Biology, publishes high quality papers and focuses on integration of the various disciplines within the broad field of zoology. These fields include: immunology (the study of the immune system and how it works to protect us from harmful organisms and harmful substances produced by them); pathogenic microbiology (the study of disease-causing microorganisms and the disease process (epidemiology and etiology)); microbial genetics (which is linked to molecular biology); food microbiology (studying the effects of food spoilage); and so on 2.

For good reason, evolutionary biologists now sometimes speak in terms of theoretical and applied evolutionary biology, indicating that the scientific discipline continues to prosper as it reaches out to new areas of research. Biology students practice and apply their knowledge in both field and laboratory settings, and master basic skills including statistical analysis, various laboratory methods, and techniques and taxonomic (identification) skills.

Evolutionary biology is partly based on paleontology , which uses the fossil record to answer questions about the mode and tempo of evolution, 57 and partly on the developments in areas such as population genetics 58 In the 1980s, developmental biology re-entered evolutionary biology after its initial exclusion from the modern synthesis through the study of evolutionary developmental biology 59 Phylogenetics , systematics , and taxonomy are related fields often considered part of evolutionary biology.

Pharmaceutical microbiology is concerned with the study of microorganisms associated with the manufacture of pharmaceuticals. The branch of science which deals with the study of origin of new from old i.e. origin, variation, inter-relationship between organisms of past and present days. Our undergraduate students thrive in an atmosphere that promotes exploration and collaboration across all areas of research and study.

Graduate students from Cristescu Lab collecting environmental DNA at the Gault Nature Reserve, Mount Saint Hilaire. Biology: A natural science concerned with the study of life and living organisms. The branch of science which deals with the study of cells and their organelles. The College of Science Biology program provides students with a broad understanding of the organization and processes of life, from molecules and cells through tissues and organs, to populations, ecosystems, and evolution.
