About Cell & Molecular

 | Post date: 2016/12/6 | 

Cells are the fundamental unit of life, composed of billions of molecules: DNA, RNA, proteins, glycans, lipids, and small molecules that have defined molecular properties and biological activities.

Cell and Molecular Biology is an interdisciplinary field that bridges the fields of chemistry, structure and biology as it seeks to understand life and cellular processes at the molecular level. In the midst of the "omics" era that is producing vast databases cataloguing the molecular components of cells, it is ever more important to discover the basic mechanisms that allow cells to have differentiated properties and coordinate the activities that form the essential systems that define a living cell. This will be crucial for understanding the basis of human disease.

The Cell and Molecular Biology faculty are providing important new insights into the basis and treatment of numerous human diseases, including among others cancer, diabetes, cardiomyopathies, retinal degeneration, muscular dystrophy, cystic fibrosis, and mental retardation. Our work is defining the underlying mechanisms of human disease, identifying new therapeutic targets responsible for disease, and laying the foundation for the development of novel therapies to counter disease.

The "omics" era will continue to be one of rapid growth and discovery that will continuously expand the potential of Cell and Molecular biology to get answers. Through the application of ever more powerful tools, we are rapidly placing the growing compendium of cellular molecules in their functional context within the cell, and the integrated functions of cells in our bodies to address the most central problems in human health development of medicines for the 21st century. It could not be a more exciting time!

About Plant Biology

 | Post date: 2016/12/6 | 

Plant Biology is the scientific study of plants as organisms. It includes the disciplines of cellular and molecular plant biology and the traditional areas of botany such as anatomy, morphology, systematics, physiology, mycology, phycology, ecology, and evolution.

Faculty members in the Department of Plant Biology share an interest in the study of plants as organisms, ranging from algae to higher plants. Their teaching and research activities focus primarily on three broad areas: plant molecular and cell biology, including plant genetics; plant physiology and biophysics; and plant structural and developmental biology. In addition, the faculty maintains an interest in the study of plant diversity.

Research in the Department focuses on basic aspects of plant biology, complementing the applied focus of programs in the campus' College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. Faculty members in the Department rely on approaches in molecular biology, genetics and biochemistry to identify and characterize plant genes and to investigate plant structure, function and development. Others study interactions between plants and their environment.

The Department offers a broadly based undergraduate major in plant biology that covers the areas identified above as well as plant ecology and evolution and applied plant biology. Undergraduate students can also select an area of emphasis in Plant Biology within the Biological Sciences major. The Department houses the campus' Graduate Group in Plant Biology and offers courses that contribute to the curriculum in Plant Biology as well as related graduate programs. Members of the Department serve as major advisers to graduate students in Plant Biology and other graduate programs.

The plant biology major consists of core courses in applied plant biology, plant anatomy, plant physiology, and plant ecology, as well as biochemistry, cell biology, and genetics. In addition, students complete a set of courses in one of the following areas: (1) general botany; (2) applied plant biology; (3) plant evolution an ecology; (4) plant genetics and breeding; and (5) plant physiology, development, and molecular biology. The major provides breadth in diverse areas of plant biology and depth in one of several areas of specialization. Independent research opportunities in plant biology are available.

A plant biology degree is an excellent credential for a wide range of career options, including domestic and international opportunities in business, research and teaching in both governmental and private sectors. Plant biologists can work in the field, in the forest, in the laboratory, in botanical gardens or nurseries, in food or seed companies, or in pharmaceutical, energy or chemical industries, and pursue rewarding careers in the areas of biotechnology, environmental protection, farming or agribusiness. The program is also an excellent background for students wishing to enter graduate or other professional schools, including medicine, law or journalism.
