A first-class undergraduate biology degree is your stepping stone to many career options, including world-class research, pharmaceutical industry, biotechnology, forensics and more. The biologists at UTM can help you attain these career goals. We offer exciting undergraduate programs in all of the major biological areas with specialization in four main topics: Ecology & Field Biology, Whole Organisms; Genetics & Evolution; Cell, Molecular & Developmental Biology; Physiology & Behaviour.
With over two dozen active research scientists, more than forty graduate students and many post-doctoral fellows doing state-of-the-art research using the latest techniques, our students will have the opportunity to learn from the best. Our undergraduate research projects and summer student placements in research labs will give students valuable, first-hand experience working in a laboratory environment. We also have a dedicated Biology liaison librarian to assist our students in maximizing their research efforts when using U of T’s extensive library resources.

Happy Reading Week and boy, do we have a paper for you to read! This week we celebrate another great paper by PhD student Meet Zandawala (Orchard Lab).
Adaptation to climatic gradients is pervasive in nature, but how do we identify the genomic signatures of such adaptations?
The Hot Student Paper series is about celebrating the achievements of our students and PDFs. It is about recognizing the years of figurative and literal blood, sweat and tears that go into a single publication.
