Biological sciences is the study of life and living organisms, their life cycles, adaptations and environment. Our faculty are award-winning instructors who are passionate about fostering a love of science while developing students into successful scientists and leaders. Molecular biology is the study of biology at the molecular level. Faculty Research Cancer, Limnology, Tropical Diseases, Molecular Biology, and Neuroscience are a few of the areas of Biology being analyzed by faculty members at Baylor University.
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.
Research All Biology faculty members share a passion for cultivating a love of research in students. In addition to subject-specific knowledge of biological systems and concepts, you develop a range of practical and technical skills and learn how to use specialist techniques and technical equipment. In years 2 and 3, you’ll build on your fundamental biology skills and knowledge. The friction between the two areas – and the protection of the lesser funded evolutionary biology – was resolved by a process of fission separating or cleaving the two halves of biology, one molecular and the other organismic (Smocovitis, 1996).
Biology is the study of living things. Synonyms: biological science; life science. To this end, the Biology Department has two Diversity Committees — one comprised of faculty and another of graduate students —in order to promote equity, reduce bias, embrace and increase diversity, and build respect, inclusion, and cultural competency among all members of the department. Tri-Beta is a national honorary society for students majoring in the biological sciences.
New directions in biological research especially from the discovery of the structure of DNA in 1953, as well as new techniques made available in sciences like biochemistry and genetics were at first only slowly integrated by evolutionary biology. Biology pre-health students and others from UNC traveled to Spain over the summer to gain clinical hours, cherished memories and insights from physicians on what it truly means to be a healthcare professional.
