Please contact the Biology Department or the Office of Graduate Studies to learn the current status of the program. These are the main branches of biology: [77] [78] Agriculture – the study of producing crops and raising livestock, with an emphasis on practical applications Anatomy – the study of form and function, in plants, animals, and other organisms, or specifically in humans Histology – the study of cells and tissues, a microscopic branch of anatomy Astrobiology (also known as exobiology, exopaleontology, and bioastronomy) – the study of evolution, distribution, and future of life in the universe Biochemistry – the study of the chemical reactions required for life to exist and function, usually a focus on the cellular level Bioinformatics – the use of information technology for the study, collection, and storage of genomic and other biological data Biomathematics (or Mathematical biology) – the quantitative or mathematical study of biological processes, with an emphasis on modeling Biomechanics – often considered a branch of medicine, the study of the mechanics of living beings, with an emphasis on applied use through prosthetics or orthotics Pharmacology – the study and practical application of preparation, use, and effects of drugs and synthetic medicines Biomusicology – the study of music from a biological point of view.

The “dark reactions” of photosynthesis are a misnomer that often leads students to believe that photosynthetic carbon fixation occurs at night.23 It is preferable to use the term “Calvin cycle” instead of dark reactions. Others may go on to earn a teaching certificate and become biology teachers in public high schools. How behavior is influenced by natural selection in relation to ecological conditions. A study of Darwinism, the history of life in the context of contemporary biology, and the evidences and mechanisms of evolutionary change, with particular emphasis on human evolution and the challenges of teaching and understanding evolution in modern society.

Though there is some disagreement among historians of biology about the precise origins, the transition to modern biology appears to have occurred from the late eighteenth century to the early nineteenth century. Millions of different proteins can be formed from the combinations of different amino-acid molecules. After germination, mitosis continues, being more intense in the apical meristems near the tips of roots and shoots. This includes such subjects as the cell, genes, inheritance, microorganisms, plants, animals, and the human body.

Prepares students for graduate study in ecology and evolution, for professional schools that seek individuals with strong system-level approaches to problem solving, and for careers in natural resources and conservation. Azevedo Water and soil pollution promotes environmental degradation and interferes with the fauna and flora, and pollutants such as arsenic (As) are toxic to most organisms. You will have the opportunity to undertake challenging independent research projects dealing with questions and issues at the cutting edge of life science research.
