Undergraduate Programs - Molecular and Cellular Biology

Molecular and cellular biology has evolved in recent years as a response to the increased ability to study organisms at the molecular level. This discipline involves the systematic study of the molecular and structural basis for the organization, transmission and expression of genetic information, in addition to the general study of macromolecular systems involved in the structure of DNA and molecular genetics including gene cloning, sequencing, and mapping. Developments in recombinant DNA technology have opened up entirely new areas of study and provided powerful techniques that are revolutionizing the pharmaceutical, health and agricultural industries and have spawned new industries in biotechnology.

Requirements for the Bachelor of Science degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology at the University of Maine are satisfied with completion of at least 120 degree hours with a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0 overall in courses of the major.
