Ecology and Evolutionary Biology
The Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB)
is the home of the Biology Major. Other EEB majors include: Ecology, Behavior, & Evolution as well as Marine Biology. EEB also offers a Minor in Conservation Biology and a Specialization in Computing. Its mission is twofold: to provide new knowledge of the ecological and evolutionary processes that produce and sustain life on Earth, and to educate the next generation of scholars, professionals, and citizens for the biological, environmental and biotechnological challenges of the future
Integrative Biology and Physiology
Department of Integrative Biology and Physiology (IBP)
is dedicated to explaining the function of complex biological systems, in cells, organs, and individuals. The recent rapid advances in molecular and cell biology and genetics, including the sequencing of numerous genomes, has provided an unprecedented opportunity to use this new information to understand how the genes interact to produce emergent phenotypes in complex systems.
