Biofrontier Sciences

Introduction

Education and research designed to give students interested in the biology of cold zone life forms a greater understanding of humanity’s relationship with the natural world and a means of leveraging bioproduction to improve quality of life through the integrated study of diverse life processes related to leading edge bioscience and biotechnology

Research Projects

  • Developmental Control
  • Cold-adaptation Biology
  • Systems Thermobiology
  • Molecular Genetics of Cellular Response and Signaling
  • Virus Research of Temperate Fruit Crops
  • Function of bioagents from entomoresource and insect biotechnology
