Molecular & Cell Biology

What is Molecular & Cell Biology?

Molecular & Cell Biology marries biochemistry, genomics, and cell biology providing a new approach for the study of living organisms.

Advances in Molecular Cellular Biology such as the development of DNA technology opens up exciting growth in this area of biology. Molecular Biology represents a fundamental component of biological and medical science and has increasingly important roles to play in many aspects of modern medicine, genetics, evolutionary biology, bioinformatics, biotechnology and genomics.

Careers as laboratory technician, research specialist, molecular or cellular biologist and biology teacher are some of the options for Molecular Cellular Biologists.
