Welcome to the Department of Biology at Colorado State University. Our internationally-recognized research and education programs focus on organisms, diving into mechanistic detail about how they work, or stepping back to consider how they interact with each other and with their environment. From cells to the biosphere, we make discoveries about fundamental questions in Biology, and we use this new knowledge to make the world a better place. CSU Biology is a place where everyone is welcome to indulge their curiosity about the living world.
Mary Taylor Young, an award-winning nature writer and graduate of Colorado State University, is being inducted into the Colorado Authors’ Hall of Fame.
The discovery of how plant resistance proteins trigger localized cell death could lead to new strategies for engineering disease resistance in crops.
Computer science and biology researchers are helping scientists engineer how organisms respond to changing environments.
