The core curriculum is an integrated series of five courses
encompassing the fundamentals of biochemistry and molecular biology
in the context of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cell biology. It is
designed so that BIO207(Core I) is taken during the first semester,
BIO208 (Core II)and BIO211 (Core III) are taken concurrently during
the second semester, and BIO212 (Core IV) and BIO215(Core V) are
taken concurrently during the Fall semester of the second year.
All students will take BIO599 (Departmental Seminars)for credit
during the first three semesters and for 0 credit thereafter.
Doctoral students are required to enroll in BIO550 (Research
Rotation) in the Spring semester of their first year, and in BIO551
(Research Rotation II) during the summer between their first and
