Research

As a subject, biology covers a lot of ground. Research in our department spans the full range of organisms (prokaryote and eukaryote, plant and animal, invertebrate and vertebrate), levels (genetics and biochemistry to physiology and development to ecology and environment) and evolutionary scales (population to phylum).

Research Groups

Our graduate and research faculty are organized into three broad groups which represent natural divisions within the department, with responsibilities to organize activities specifically relevant to the group. The groups are not restrictive; many individual faculty align with more than one group due to the breadth of their research interests.

Ecology & Evolution

Molecular, Cellular & Developmental Biology

Plant Sciences

 

Graduate Faculty Research Interests

Graduate Faculty interests and activities often integrate multiple and diverse research themes. There is a wide range of research represented within the department, with faculty members with active interests in each area.
