About the Molecular 生物学 Degree Program


The most exciting things happening in biology right now are at the molecular (DNA, 核糖核酸, 蛋白质)级别. The Molecular 生物学 degree at the 内布拉斯加大学 at Kearney is designed to meet the needs of students desiring a strong background in this fast-moving and ever-growing field.

Through molecular research, insights into various diseases such as cancer, heart disease and genetic disorders are possible. Sequencing of a large number of genomes has clarified the evolutionary relationships among organisms. In the current medical field, a new emphasis is placed on molecular biology, and incoming students will become well versed in the information and techniques that constitute this exciting and challenging area.

In addition to the medical and healthcare fields, most fields of biological research are converging on molecular biology and the techniques employed to answer questions and test hypotheses, making this expertise highly applicable to a wide range of educational and career opportunities.

Because of the emphasis offered by this comprehensive program, no minor or second major are required.
