The Department of Biology at LUMS offers rigorous undergraduate and graduate programs, which impart cutting-edge knowledge of 21st-century biology exposing students to its theoretical as well as experimental aspects. Two streams are offered to the aspiring Biology majors: Molecular and Cellular Biology (MCB) and Computational Biology (CB). Biology is important since it aims to tell us about the natural world around us. Recent advances have brought the subject to the forefront of contemporary sciences and have integrated it with numerous disciples, including chemistry, mathematics, physics, electrical engineering and computer science. This has led to the emergence of new areas of study and research such as molecular biology, cell and developmental biology, computational biology, diseases, biophysics and systems biology, all of which are in the realm of the biology program at SBASSE.
