Biological Sciences

About

Department of Biology, as a part of the faculty of Basic Science, founded in 1983 and Biology Teacher Training was the first program offered by this faculty; however, upon the division of Basic Sciences faculty into three independent faculties in 2014, the department of Biology respectively commenced working independent of other two faculties. Currently, Faculty of Biological Sciences is consisted of three departments of Botany and Plant Sciences, Biotechnology, and Microbiology. The faculty moreover offers fields of Microbial Biotechnology and Microbiology, Plant Sciences (with branches of Physiology, and Systematic Ecology), Biochemistry, and Biophysics.
