Biology department

The IAUM biology department started to work in 1989 with 118 students in BA level of general biology field and in 1993 with BA level of teaching biology. Now by having 1070 students in three orientations in BA level and about 112 MSC students continues its activities.

This field includes botany, zoology, biophysics, biochemistry, general biology and teaching biology orientations and totally has more than 28 laboratories that hold on in eleven independent laboratorial environments.

The biology department laboratories

The biology department has been able to provide appropriate research laboratorial equipments in order to help students' growth and education.

This department's laboratories are such as : plant biology ,animal biology ,zoology, protozoology ,cellular and molecular biology, genetic, microbiology, animal physiology , histology and embryology, anatomy and morphology of plant, plant systematic, plant physiology and biochemistry.
