Research in the Department of Biological Sciences span from the molecular to the organismal levels using various model systems such as bacteria, protozoa, human cells, plants, fruitflies, zebrafish, ants, mice and dogs to try to answer various outstanding questions in biology. This is complemented by research in theoretical and computational biology. Together, this provides a broad and interdisciplinary platform of research covering nearly all areas of modern biology. The research interests of individual faculty members are given below:
