Ecology and Evolution
Research in ecology at UTA encompasses a wide variety of organisms in a diversity of ecosystems. We address questions at the population, community, and ecosystem levels and collaborate with researchers in other disciplines, both within UTA and beyond. Faculty and students in our group use mathematical modeling, statistical techniques, controlled laboratory experiments, and long-term field studies to examine basic and applied ecological concepts.

The Biology Department awards a Ph.D. in Quantitative Biology as well as M.S., B.S., and B.A. degrees. Undergraduates may choose the Environmental Biology option as their program of study, emphasizing ecological and environmental coursework. Several of our faculty participate in the interdisciplinary Environmental and Earth Sciences program, offering both the M.S. and Ph.D., as well as a 5-year dual B.S. in Biology and M.S. in Environmental and Earth Sciences.

Genome Biology
The Genome Biology Group at the University of Texas at Arlington is an interactive and integrative collection of laboratories that endeavors to discover genome dynamics in diverse organisms. Our research has broad applications to health, the environment, and biodiversity studies. With a commitment to teaching excellence and enhancing the student experience, we provide modern interpretations of both classic and contemporary courses and encourage undergraduate research. Our goals are deeply aligned with UTA DNA.
Microbiology
There is considerable research activity in the Microbiology Program (follow the faculty links) and consequently, there are ample opportunities for graduate studies. Detailed information about the Graduate Program may be found within the Biology Departments web site.

The University of Texas at Arlington offers a sequence of courses leading to the Bachelor's Degree in Microbiology. The program in Microbiology is housed within the Department of Biology and is taught by faculty whose research interests cover a wide variety of topics in the field.
