Video Transcript


Research training opportunities in the Molecular Genetics and Cell Biology area of concentration extend across the molecular, cellular, intercellular and organismal levels of biology.

During their course of study, students in this area can choose to become part of a wide range of laboratory projects including investigations into the maintenance and replication of genomes, mechanisms of inherited disease, infection and immunity, signal transduction and evolution. The spectrum of experimental approaches includes in vitro systems, bacterial, fungal, animal and human cell culture, whole animal models and population studies.

Students in this area have the chance to experience research first hand alongside experts in their fields. They utilize the most modern tools and techniques in molecular and cell biology including DNA cloning and sequencing, genetic manipulation of bacterial, insect and animal cells and their viruses, protein mutagenesis and expression, high resolution light and fluorescence microscopy, flow cytometry, mass spectrometry, bioinformatics and proteomics.

Students with a degree concentration in Molecular Genetics and Cell Biology are equipped for careers in academia, clinical research and testing, or industry with subcategories of molecular biology, cell biology, immunology, pharmacology and ecology. Spend a moment to review each of the focus areas and to learn more about each of our faculty’s research programs!
