Biology is the study of living organisms: their structure, function, organization, origin, and evolution. A five-course minor in biology is also available for undergraduate students. Postgraduate study is a popular choice for biology graduates. Our upper-level courses cover diverse sub-disciplines within biology, and offer you the chance to study areas you love the most—whether that’s immunology, arctic ecology, developmental biology, evolution, or another track—guided by faculty doing real-world research in those fields.

These are just a few of the many biology examples wherein its fundamental tenets are integrated into other scientific fields. AIMS AND SCOPE OF JOURNAL: The Annual Review of Cell and Developmental Biology, in publication since 1985, covers the most significant developments in the field of cell and developmental biology, including structure, function, and organization of the cell, development and evolution of the cell as it relates to single and multicellular organisms, and models and tools of molecular biology.

Biological research indicates the first forms of life on Earth were microorganisms that existed for billions of years before the evolution of larger organisms. Human biology is the branch of biology that focuses on humans in terms of evolution, genetics, anatomy and physiology, ecology, epidemiology, and anthropology. Basic Biology offers certificates to students who prove their knowledge of the basic principles of biology.

We offer a core curriculum for all of the biological sciences” taught at Western and exceptional graduate and undergraduate programs in Biology and sub disciplines. Those specializing in this field will explore complex biological phenomena in multi-cellular organisms, looking at the organization and behavior of different cells and tissues, and examining the function of molecules within the organism. The scope of Biology Letters is vast — publishing high-quality research in any area of the biological sciences.

We are committed to providing students with a broad exposure to biological processes and systems and a deep understanding of biology at environmental, organismal, cellular, and molecular levels. The options system in the second and third years allows students to study either a general background encompassing a comprehensive range of topics, or specialise in detailed aspects of animals, plants, cells or ecology.
