Integrative Organismal Biology

Post by JackBean » Fri Oct 30, 2009 12:23 pm

Hi,
do you, anybody, know, what is exactly Integrative Organismal Biology? I looked to Google, but it found either some books or some definitions of integrative biology, but I'm not much sure about i.o.b. :roll:

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

The best I can do for this is guess, Jack. Perhaps "Organismal" it there to delimit the scale, to make the title distinct from, say, "Integrative ecological biology" or "integrative cellular biology". That would limit somewhat the scope of study within Integrative Organismal Biology. Is this a department title, or perhaps the name of a journal?

The have actually slash in between, so maybe it's not suppoes to be like one name, but in the first course they have in there it's as one name again... so not sure about that... :-/
