Quantitative and Systems Biology (M.S., Ph.D.)

Advances in techniques and theory that bridge molecular and ecosystems scales have greatly enabled the potential for integration across the life sciences. Biologists' ability to gather and process large amounts of quantitative data in field and laboratory settings is advancing hand-in-hand with theory and modeling that better explain the diversity of life on Earth. Master of Science (M.S.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees are offered.

The QSB doctoral degree at UC Merced provides individualized, research-based courses of study. Research projects are available on diverse topics including:

  • Biomolecular interactions
  • Genomics and proteomics
  • Cellular interactions and signal transduction
  • Organ systems and whole animals (both vertebrate and invertebrate)
  • Comparative ecology, evolution and organismal biology
  • Computational biology
