The Biological Sciences is an interdepartmental umbrella program at University of Maryland that consists of four Areas of Concentration:
- Behavior, Ecology, Evolution, and Systematics (BEES)
- Computational Biology, Bioinformatics, and Genomics (CBBG)
- Molecular and Cell Biology (MOCB)
- Physiological Systems (PSYS)
Graduate students in BISI are associated with one of these areas, but their interests often span multiple concentrations, which allows the development of innovative research projects across traditional disciplinary boundaries.
Facilities and Special Resources
The campus and local area provide students access to a vast array of instrumentation, equipment, facilities, and technologies to advance biological research. As examples, the college has state of the art facilities for research in all aspects of cell and molecular biology including cell and organism culturing, protein and nucleic acid analyses, peptide sequencing, oligonucleotide synthesis and sequencing, fluorescence, confocal microscopy, scanning and transmission electron microscopy, computer graphics for molecular modeling, NMR, mass-spectroscopy, and X-ray diffraction. Students have access to a laboratory for evolutionary molecular sequence analysis; gas source stable isotope mass spectrophotometer; bioacoustic lab; flume lab; GIS (graphic information systems) lab; and high-speed network access to a wide range of desktop and super-computing facilities. Greenhouses and animal care facilities are available.
