Research Track

M.S. in Environmental Science Research Track

The purpose of the research track is to prepare students for advanced (doctoral level) studies in environmental science and related disciplines, and careers in scientific research or professional work for which a research background is necessary or desirable.  The capstone requirement for the research track is a traditional research thesis, for which the student earns six hours of academic credit. General requirements for research theses are described in the Graduate Bulletin.

Biotechnology Workshops

Annual Biotechnology Workshop for High School Students

A very valuable satellite benefit of establishing the molecular biology teaching laboratory at the University of Guam is the opportunity to reach out to the high school community of the island of Guam in efforts to attract students to careers in the bio-medical sciences.  In Spring 2003, 2004 & 2005 biotechnology workshops were organized for high school students from St. John’s High school, Guam.  The workshop was organized by Dr. Odi Diambra of St.

Biochemistry Lecture & Laboratory Course Descriptions


In Fall 2001, Dr. Subir Ghosh conducted the Biochemistry lecture and laboratory courses, BI 419/G & BI 419L/G.  The Biochemistry course was designed in a manner to integrate Biochemistry with concepts from Genetics, Molecular Biology, and Cellular Physiology, so students can interconnect ideas presented in these different courses and obtain a holistic picture of the overall biological process.  The course was once again conducted in Spring 2005.

Cellular Physiology Lecture & Laboratory Course Descriptions


Dr. Subir Ghosh conducted the Cellular Physiology course during Spring 2000 & 2002 semesters.  This course is taken primarily by biology major juniors and is a prerequisite for the upper division level Molecular Biology course.  This course has a lecture, BI 416 and a laboratory component, BI 416L.  During Spring 2000, Dr. Ghosh introduced for the first time at UOG, recombinant DNA technology based experiments in a biology major laboratory course.
