In BIO our research area is divided into four main themes:
- Organisms and the Environment - we address fundamental evolutionary and ecological questions by studying a variety of species and systems in both the lab and the field.
- Cells and Tissues - the cells and tissues theme aims at understanding tissue specification and function in health and disease
- Molecular Microbiology - the molecular microbiology theme addresses fundamental aspects of microbiology and microbial biochemistry
- Plant Sciences - the plant sciences theme has broad interests, which address many aspects of plant biology and includes groups in The Sainsbury Laboratory.
