The School is comprised of seven disciplines that fall under three clusters: Biotechnology, Biodiversity & Evolutionary Biology and Cellular Biology.
Biotechnology is the branch of applied science that uses living organisms and their derivatives to produce products and processes. The Biotechnology cluster is comprised of three disciplines:
Biodiversity & Evolutionary Biology
Ecology is the study of organisms, the environment and how the organisms interact with each other and their environment. It is studied at various levels, such as organism, population, biosphere and ecosystem.
Marine biology is the study of marine organisms, their behaviors and interactions with the environment. Marine biologists study life in the oceans, and sometimes the oceans themselves.
Cell biology is the study of cell structure and function, and it revolves around the concept that the cell is the fundamental unit of life. Focusing on the cell permits a detailed understanding of the tissues and organisms that cells compose.
