Biological science is the study of life and living organisms, their life cycles, adaptations and environment. There are many different areas of study under the biological sciences including Microbiology, Food and Nutritional Science, Agriculture, Fisheries, Biotechnology and Evolutionary Biology. A biological science, course involves combination of practical and theoretical work with a mixture of lectures, seminars, lab and field works. Prospective students in biological science can expect to expand their knowledge of advance biosciences including microbial world, nutritionally enriched safe foods, fisheries and marine biology, cell theory, evolution, genetics and molecular biology, biotechnology and bioinformatics, drug design and discovery, energy and homeostasis.
The vision of the Rajshahi Institute of Biosciences (RIB) at Rajshahi University (RU) is to develop a strong regional and national reputation as a research-based biological institute and to leverage our strengths in research to deliver a high-quality comprehensive education in the biological sciences. An internationally recognized institute for teaching and research strengths in emerging areas ranging from molecular to global biology.
The mission of the Rajshahi Institute of Biosciences is to serve the communities of our nation and to establish a global recognition in the long run by delivering advanced understanding of living organisms and their interactions with the environment through research. Providing quality education in the biological sciences, with an emphasis on experimental learning and problem solving. Our aim is to develop broadly trained graduates who can work as practitioners, scientists, educators, and pioneers who can contribute to improve food safety and security, microbial control, human health, enhanced environmental sustainability, fisheries resources and promote public understanding of the biological sciences.
