Biology is a natural science about nature and its principles. This field of study explores living and non-living forms of organisms, including humans, animals, plants and microorganisms. Biology analyzes their structures, functioninig, growth, classifications, evolution, origin, distribution and interrelationships. It has a broad spectrum of academic fields like anatomy, astrobiology, biomechanics, botany, biophysics, pathology, zoology, neurobiology, anthropology, evolutionary biology, ichthyology, histology, biochemistry, ecology, physiology and many others.
Modern biology pays significant attention to cell structures, chemical and organic relations between atoms and molecules, gene engineering and modeling of evolution. Graduates can work in many different positions or improve knowledge at scientific research.
The complete sequence of the human and other genomes resulted in a drastic change in the way of thinking in Biosciences. Investigations on the molecular basis of major human diseases, such as cancer, atherosclerosis, type 2 diabetes and Alzheimer’s are now addressed on whole genome, transcriptome, proteome and metabolome level.
Plant Breeding plays an important role in the development of plant varieties for food, feed and industrial uses. New varieties have to meet current demands regarding yield, disease resistance, quality characteristics, salt or drought tolerance and suitability for sustainable plant production systems.
This new Masters by Research Programme will provide you with the specialist knowledge and skills required for a career in the exciting growth sector of algal biotechnology.
This master's degree is designed for graduates of biosciences such as biology, biochemistry, biotechnology, chemistry, oenology, pharmacy, food science and technology, medicine, veterinary medicine, economics, dietetics and nutrition, and holders of any diploma or degree in engineering, who wish to further their knowledge of the production of fermented beverages, in particular sparkling wine and beer, or to do research in oenology and biotechnology. It is desirable for students to have a good knowledge of the main language of instruction (Spanish), and a basic level of English in oral comprehension and writing.
An M.S. degree is a good option for students wishing to prepare for industry or who are unsure about a committing to a Ph.D. program. M.S. students take a number of technical courses and thesis writing courses depending on their degree goal. In addition, the two department seminar courses are highly recommended but not required.
Interactions between plants, fungi and the environment from an evolutionary and historical perspective, with organisational levels ranging from genes to ecosystems, are explored in this programme.
Students learn to manage living resources in all types of water bodies, natural or man-made. The programme provides understanding of the biology and ecology of aquatic organisms and water bodies.
Learn what infections bacteria, viruses and fungi cause with a Master of Science in Microbiology from the University of South Florida. INTO's Graduate Pathway in Microbiology prepares international students for a master's degree in the US by providing specialized English language and test preparation courses.
This online programme will provide you with the stimulus, guidance and knowledge to develop a career around new approaches to drug discovery. You will study the challenges in developing novel drugs; the science underlying emerging fields of drug discovery; the application of new ideas to the field; how drug discovery relates to real-world health problems; the commercial aspects of drug discovery; and potential future developments.
Occupational Therapy is an exciting and rewarding field working with children and adults who have physical, cognitive, or emotional disabilities that interfere with their ability to engage in life's tasks. There are a variety of career options and the job outlook for OT’s is outstanding because of the shortage of practitioners. The Program in Occupational Therapy prepares students to work with children and adults who have physical, cognitive, or emotional disabilities that interfere with their ability to engage in life's tasks. Occupational therapists serve as vital members of a treatment team, consulting with physicians, physical and speech therapists, nurses, social workers, psychologists, vocational counselors, teachers, other specialists, and family members. They blend a scientific knowledge of the human body and mind with an understanding of the challenges of disability, environment, and culture.
The Molecular Biology and Biotechnology programme aims to prepare high-quality, broad spectrum specialist in biology that are distinguished by creative and critical thinking, having fundamental low-based knowledge and faculties necessary for various biology-related tasks.
