Since working with living organisms is complicated and the secrets of life are too complex for a single biological discipline to fully decipher, more and more, the Biological Sciences research at Seoul National University requires collaboration, sharing of ideas and knowledge with other disciplines in natural sciences as well as with the fields of humanities and social sciences.


One of the goals in the School of Biological Sciences at Seoul National University is to pursue the understanding of biological phenomena at all levels of biology; molecular, cellular, physiological, behavioral and ecological biology.
