The major offers the mathematical, chemical, and physical background necessary for understanding biology and the practical scientific skills associated with each of these areas. It allows students to begin to specialize in a subdiscipline of biology such as animal physiology, cell biology, ecology, marine biology, microbiology, molecular biology, plant biology, zoology, and so forth. The Department of Biology has core research facilities that include: genomics facility with an Affymetrix suite of instruments for DNA array hybridization, scanning and analysis; core molecular biology and protein chemistry instrumentation; facilities for cell growth, storage and processing; controlled-environment rooms; bioinformatics computer cluster; electron microscopy center, and additional types of microscopy, including confocal and fluorescence; phosphoimager and equipment for image analysis; research museum for vertebrate studies, and a wide variety of preparative and analytical instruments.
