This Center for Biomolecular Sciences (CMBS) was formed to provide a mechanism to
bring together scientists from the Department
of Biological Sciences and the Department of
Chemistry to participate in research and graduate education. The faculty within
this center are experts in their fields, many of them with national and international
reputations. This center includes three sub-areas; Molecular Microbiology, Molecular Evolution,
and Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. Some faculty have connections in all three groups, as well as
Bioinformatics, Cancer Biology, Proteomics, Genomics, Phylogenetics and others.
CMBS is dedicated to producing quality research and graduate education in its efforts to answer
basic and applied research questions.
