Among the nation's leading public universities, UC Davis is unique in having top-caliber programs in virtually all fields touched by biotechnology-agriculture, veterinary and human medicine, biology, environmental sciences and biomedical engineering. Close to half of the campus's 1,500 faculty members are involved in the life sciences, positioning UC Davis to become a world leader in the post-genome era of scientific research. The university has launched a genomics intiatiative (, including a soon-to-be constructed $95 million Genome and Biomedical Sciences Building. In particular, the university is developing leading programs in functional genomics, proteomics and bioinformatics.

UC Davis biology graduates are sought after by biotechnology companies. The campus has been nation's top producer of biological-science doctoral degrees nearly every year since the National Research Council began keeping track in 1987. Moreover, those Ph.D. programs are highly regarded, tying for 6th among public institutions in U.S. News and World Report's 2001 ranking. Graduate programs in plant biology and ecology, evolution and behavior are considered the nation's best (The Gourman Report and Bulletin of the Ecological Society of America, respectively).

UC Davis ranks first in recipients of bioscience grants from the National Science Foundation.

The Division of Biological Sciences ( offers nine majors to more than 3,600 undergraduate students and administers 12 graduate groups for more than 500 students. The division is organized into five academic sections: Evolution and Ecology; Microbiology; Neurobiology, Physiology and Behavior; Molecular and Cellular Biology; and Plant Biology.
