Biology

Biology is the scientific study of growth, function, origin, and evolution of organisms and life and covers a great number of fields including ecology, ecosystems, genetics, anatomy, physiology, cells, botany, animals and plants. Many Bachelor in Biology programs are aimed at being pre-professional, such as pre-medicine, pre-dentistry, pre-ecology, or other scientific disciplines.

Through laboratory and coursework, students earning a Bachelor in Biology learn the skills necessary to become biologists or scientists. Some coursework for Bachelor in Biology programs may focus on human biology including physiology, genetics, and anatomy, while others may focus on ecology, such as conservation, environmental management, and biotechnology. With a Bachelor in Biology, graduates have the option of such jobs as laboratory and research work in the public or private sector, health departments, government, working alongside scientists, teaching, or continuing on to post graduate education.

License In Psychomotricity

Université Internationale de Casablanca

Bachelors in Biology. Psychomotricity encompasses all motor functions that are directly or indirectly related to thought, psychology and brain functions. It is a discipline as much as a current of thought which puts forth the connection between the body and the psyche. Psychomotricity is upstream of abstraction, it exists when thought needs the body, and its tonic imprint to conceive and develop. Using various techniques, "psychomotricity" tends to develop harmony between a person's body, affect, and intelligence. Thus by "psychomotricity", we tend body and mind towards an objective of harmony, both internal through serenity and external through adaptation. The psychomotor is a health professional practicing in infants, children, adolescents, adults and the elderly who have difficulty adapting to the world because of disturbed perceptual-motor integration. The psychomotor is therefore addressed to a population of different ages, for prevention, screening, diagnosis and especially therapy. Some of its interventions may also be educational, especially in the context of early childhood. The course of psychomotricity of the International University of Casablanca is a training that is prepared in 3 years of studies, spread over 6 semesters. The system of studies is based on a modular system of education according to the LMD system in force in national higher education and a combination of theory and practice (tutorials, internships in healthcare and school). ADMISSIONS To be a psychomotor, the person must be above all in his / her body and mind, be empathetic, be able to give attention, be attentive to the other, be... [-]

Modern Biology increasingly impacts the non-scientific world, facilitating solutions to technological, environmental, ethical, philosophical and political issues that are important to society. [+]

Biology & Marine Biology Mission Modern Biology increasingly impacts the non-scientific world, facilitating solutions to technological, environmental, ethical, philosophical and political issues that are important to society. The Department of Biology and Marine Biology at UNCW strives to train the next generation of scientists and educators, and prepare all students to make sound judgments based on a solid foundation of biological principles. The department provides an environment in which excellent teaching coupled with diverse research opportunities encourage our faculty to become leaders in their discipline. Our teaching emphasizes current theories of biological science, knowledge of basic investigative skills, and methods of critical inquiry. Our research programs, in both applied and basic aspects of discovery, value investigations of biological phenomena that impact the quality of life in our region and beyond. We lend our professional expertise to all endeavors that work for the improvement of the human condition and our environment. We believe the importance of modern biological principles must transcend the university classroom and enable our students to contribute as global citizens. Degrees Offered The Department of Biology and Marine Biology offers the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in biology, the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in marine biology, both of which prepare students for advanced study, and the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree in biology, a more flexible program which can be designed to meet personal educational goals. Students may also choose professional programs in Teacher Certification for Secondary Science (Biological Sciences) or Pre-professional programs in the Health Sciences.... [-]

Bachelor in Bioinformatics and Genetics

Kadir Has University
Campus Full time September 2017 Turkey Istanbul

Dynamics of the receptors to which drug molecules bind to is another field of study in our department. Understanding the functioning mechanism of the receptor is the very first step towards developing a way to interfere with its working mechanism. [+]

In today’s world molecular biology, biochemistry and other biological fields are becoming increasingly information driven. Mainly the need of processing massive quantities of sequence information generated by recent developments in genome sequencing and proteome analysis has propelled these life sciences into a new era in which computer science, information technologies, and biology merged into a single discipline as bioinformatics. Accordingly genetics in conjunction with bioinformatics have been changing the old view in clinical diagnostics. By comprehensive genetic testing, individuals who are more susceptible to disease can be identified before any disease even exists. This way early predictive measures can be taken. Moreover personalized drug design, to tailor a specialized treatment based on your genetic makeup, seems to be a standard way of disease treatment in the near future. In our department we concentrate on computer-aided drug design. In computer aided drug design a receptor molecule of the disease-causing mechanism is modelled in the computer. Succeedingly a drug molecule is designed to interact with the receptor molecule in such a way to fix malfunctioning mechanism of the protein. The candidate drug molecule can be a novel chemical structure which has been not synthesized before as well as a match from a database of already known drug molecules. This way of in silico computations of drug-enzyme interactions significantly shortens the process of experimental drug design for the target receptor. Dynamics of the receptors to which drug molecules bind to is another field of study in our department. Understanding the functioning mechanism of... [-]
