Welcome to the MS in Biotechnology at SFASU homepage! The Biotechnology program at SFASU is a molecular based biotechnology discipline. Areas of research include molecular virology, agriculture, cancer research, protein biochemistry, and genetics on endangered species. The program has a defined set of core courses designed to allow a student to complete his/her master's degree in two years. Typically, a student will complete the core courses within the first year while starting on their research and spend the second year completing the research towards their thesis defense.
