Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, and Genetics

NMSU faculty study fundamental biological problems at the organismal, cellular, and molecular levels, through the disciplines of biochemistry, molecular biology, and genetics.  NMSU research in this area includes drought- and disease-resistance genes in plants and livestock, and multiple projects to study their genetic characteristics, protein structure and function, cell-cycle events, organ development, and human-pathogen interaction.  In 2011, NMSU had more than $10 million in current funding from 21 sponsors in support of biochemistry, molecular biology and genetics research.
