The animal molecular and cell biology (AMCB) graduate program offers Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees. Faculty are drawn from these disciplines:
- Animal Sciences
- Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
- Large Animal Clinical Sciences
- Obstetrics and Gynecology
Early in the program, students choose a faculty supervisor who will ensure the quality of their research experience. Students may also do optional rotations through the laboratories of one or more other faculty. The Annual Research Symposium features guest speakers and student research presentations. A weekly journal club and monthly seminars draw on the knowledge and diversity the campus offers in molecular and cell biology.
Core course requirements for the M.S. degree are BCH 5045 Graduate Survey of Biochemistry (4 cr.), registration in a 1-credit graduate seminar course and successful completion of a course on responsible and ethical conduct of research. Core course requirements for the Ph.D. include BCH 5413 Mammalian Molecular Biology and Genetics (3 cr.) and GMS 6421 Cell Biology (4 cr.), registration in two graduate seminar courses and successful completion of a course on responsible and ethical conduct of research.
