|As a molecular biology major at ONU, you’ll map genes using fruit flies, test the ability of chemicals to mutate DNA, and clone genes. You’ll explore exciting breakthroughs in stem cell technology and microRNA molecules and debate the ethical and social issues involved.
Large institutions just can’t provide the individualized attention and opportunity you’ll find here. As a freshman, you’ll be in the lab working with real professors – not graduate assistants or lab instructors. Throughout your four years, you’ll design and conduct your own experiments, work on independent projects, and assist professors with grant-funded research. Most molecular biology students present their research at regional and national conferences.
From the time you arrive on campus until you graduate, you’ll be guided by a faculty advisor. You’ll enjoy small class sizes and amazing friendships with your fellow molecular biology majors. Our dedicated professors will get to know you. They will support you in your coursework, research, internships, co-ops, and post-graduate or career preparations. They will become personally invested in your success – in college and beyond.
