Biology is a natural science concerned with the study of life through the observation of structure, function, reproduction, growth, origin, evolution, and behavior of living organisms and their relation to their natural environment. Foundations of modern biology include: cell theory, evolution, genetics, homoeostasis, and energy. IUPUI biology specialties include: bacterial pathogenesis, yeast genome, organ regeneration, biomass fuels.
Many career opportunities exist for biology majors, especially now, with the rise of the biotechnology industry and the sequencing of the human genome. Jobs are available directly after the bachelor's degree (B.A. or B.S.) as entry-level careers in gene sequencing, drug testing and development, immunology, agriculture, and in all molecular, cellular and developmental areas.
