About

Cellular and Molecular Biology at University of Canterbury is the field of biology that studies the structure and function of genes at a molecular level. 

Overview

The study of chromosomes and gene expression of an organism can give insight into heredity, genetic variation, and mutations.

Genetics is at the heart of the cellular and molecular biology. It is the science of heredity. Genetics provides a platform for the development of new drugs to combat diseases, methodology for the conservation of endangered species, and understanding evolutionary patterns and processes. Furthermore, it helps us to understand who we are and what we are, enhance our biosecurity, and even catch criminals. Genetics is a rapidly advancing field that creates challenges and opportunities for society.
