The Department of Biology and the Department of Molecular Biology have from 1st of January 2018 merged into a new department; Department of Biological Sciences (BIO). BIO in Bergen is the right place to be if you want to learn more about how proteins and molecules influence organisms or how all the fascinating adaptations in plants, animals and microorganisms have evolved, how they influence us, and how we influence them and their ecosystems. At the Department of Biological Sciences we study and conduct research on processes that have a fundamental influence on our lives. Biology and molecular life science are important fields contributing to sustainable solutions for global challenges, and the knowledge we generate is essential for our health, food security, economy, nature preservation and societal development.
