The Division of Biological Sciences has a strong, interactive group of scientists exploring fundamental mechanisms of genetics and genomics. Genetics is being used to elucidate a wide range of fundamental processes, including cytokinesis, learning and memory, neuronal development, transcription, cellular signaling, physiology, metabolism and chromosome evolution. Genomic-level studies are being used to study population dynamics and development of new traits. Research in this area benefits from several campus core research facilities, including a DNA Core, and animal modeling core, a plant transformation core, and an Informatics Research Core.
