The Applied Biology Program of CALS provides students with high quality education and research opportunities in both applied and basic areas, primarily related to agriculturally-important organisms and their management in order to promote the stability of agricultural production.

The undergraduate programs, including entomology and plant microbiology, have recently put more emphasis on the application of cutting-edge sciences and technologies, such as molecular biology, genetics, and biotechnology, in order to establish a new paradigm of sustainable agriculture and environment as well as to address practical aspects of plant disease and pest management.

The program in plant microbiology offers courses on the basic and applied aspects of fungi, bacteria, viruses, and nematodes as plant pathogens, the development mechanisms of plant disease, disease epidemiology, mycotoxicology, and environmentally important soil microorganisms. In the entomology program, education and research are offered in the areas of insect systematics, ecology and population dynamics, insect physiology, insect molecular biology and biotechnology, and bioactive natural products.
