National Science Foundation funding, along with WWU support, has enabled us to establish excellent research facilities in molecular biology. All WWU research is carried out through close faculty/student interaction. Current projects include the epidemiology of tick-carried disease and annotating eukaryotic genomes. If you are interested in environmental science and wildlife resources, courses in ecology and field biology provide a background in these biological fields. As members of the Reis Biological Field Station Consortium, we have access to their outdoor laboratory site.
The Biology minor comprises 20 credits.
