生物科学与技术学院(简称“生物学院”)是基于国家理科基础研究与教学人才培养基地(简称“国家理科基地”)于1997 年组建成立的基础科学研究与教学型学院。

学院现设有植物科学系、动物科学与微生物学系、生物技术系、生物化学与分子生物学系及食品科学与工程5 个系。设生物科学(“理科基地班”)、生物技术(含“UBC 中加国际合作班”)和食品科学与工程3 个本科专业,拥有植物学和林木遗传育种2 个国家级重点学科,1 个国家工程实验室,3 个省部级重点实验室,1 个北京高等学校实验教学示范中心,1 个计算生物学中心。建有生物学博士后流动站,拥有植物学、林木遗传育种、生物化学与分子生物学、微生物学、细胞生物学、森林生物资源利用博士学位授予权;农产品加工与贮藏工程、动物学和遗传学硕士学位授予权。2014年,新增1 个硕士点招生学科(计算生物学)和1 个博士点招生学科(生物信息学)。

学院建有毛白杨研究所、螺旋藻研究所、数量遗传研究所、油松落叶松研究所、蓝莓研究与发展中心、计算生物学中心、中国林地资源研究中心。学院联合发起成立“中国木本粮油产业技术创新战略联盟”,任副理事长单位,并获得中国产业合作促进会授牌。

截至 2014 年底,学院在职教工119 人,其中专任教师94 人,包括中国工程院院士1 人,千人计划学者1 人,长江学者讲座教授2 人,国家杰出青年基金获得者2 人,国务院学科评议组成员1 人、全国百篇优秀博士论文指导教师1 人、国家百千万人才工程人选2 人、全国百篇优秀博士论文获得者3 人。专任教师中,教授33 人,副教授34 人,具有博士学位的教师有90 人。

 A Brief Introduction of College of Biological Sciences and Biotechnology

College of Biological Sciences and Biotechnology (CBSB) was founded in 1997. Based on National Talent Training Base for Sciences and Teaching (National Science Base), CBSB is a teaching-oriented college with special focus on the basic research for Forestry Biology.

CBSB includes five departments, i.e., department of Plant Science, department of Animal Science and Microbiology, department of Biotechnology, department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and department of Food Science and Engineering. CBSB sets three Undergraduate Programs, namely, Biological Science (also named as Science Base Class), Biotechnology (including UBC International Class) and Food Science and Engineering. CBSB owns two National Key Disciplines (Plant Science and Genetics and Breeding for Forest Tree), one National Engineering Laboratory, three Provincial Key Laboratories, one Beijing College Experimental Teaching Demonstration Center, one Computational Biology Center, and one Post-Doctoral Research Station. CBSB provides PhD programme for six disciplines including Plant Science, Genetics and Breeding for Forest Tree, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Microbiology, Cell Biology and Forest Biological Resources, and Master Degree granting for three disciplines, which are Agricultural Product Processing and Storage Engineering, Animal Science and Genetics. In 2014, the college expands its enrollment subjects, including one master programme for Computational Biology and one doctoral programme for Bioinformatics.   

CBSB sets seven affiliated research institutes and centers,  i.e., Populus tomentosa Research Institute, Spirulina Research Institute, Quantitative Genetic Research Institute, Pinus tabulaeformis Research Institute, Research and Development Center for Blueberry, Computational Biology Center, China Forest Resources Research Center. Furthermore, it serves as the vice president unit for China Woody Grain and Oil Industry Technology Innovation Strategic Alliance, which was authorized by the China Industrial Cooperation Association.

By the end of 2014, CBSB contains 118 college staff members, in which 91 staffs serve as the full-time teachers, including 32 professors, 32 associate professors, and 87 teachers with doctoral degrees. Among the full-time professors, we highlighted here some of the outstanding members: one academician of Chinese Academy of Engineering, one scholar awarded by the Thousands of Scholars Programme, two scholar titled as ChangJiang Scholar Professor, two winners of The National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars, one scholar being the member of the discipline Evaluation Panel by State Council, one scholar entitled by the National Hundred Excellent Doctoral Thesis Supervisor, two candidates by National Talents Engineering, and three winners of the National Hundred Excellent Doctoral dissertation.
