BioSciences at Rice

We are pleased to announce that on July 1st, 2014 the departments of Biochemistry & Cell Biology (BCB) and Ecology & Evolutionary Biology (EEB) merged to form the department of BioSciences. This merger unites faculty engaged in research and teaching in a wide range of disciplines within the life sciences, creating a vibrant and diverse community of scholars housed within a single department.  The merger will have no impact on requirements for graduate or undergraduate degrees, and the majors will remain separate tracks.
