The Department of Biology at the Faculty of Science at the University of Baghdad - the beloved University of Baghdad remained loyal to the land of Mesopotamia, the cradle of civilizations and human messages. Despite the difficulties that have afflicted us all due to the hard times our beloved homeland had faced, Iraq's scientists remained grateful to support by knowledge, science, culture and treasures. They teach generations the meaning of life by studying the different life sciences and their interest in the human race, which God favored in his creation from all other creatures and his generosity in his life and all the other organisms around him, whether animal or microbial, and its relation to its origin, growth, environment, food, health and disease. What is the benefit of all that we are talking about; the development of science and technology without being in the service of life and all what is related to the good and the bad?
The Department of Biology is one of the leading and broad sections of the Faculty of Science at the University of Baghdad “Mother of Universities”. It is one of the most important pillars of the life sciences and the latest developments in the world of science and technology. The magnificence of the Department of Life Sciences is highlighted by its studies on the diversity and evolution of living organisms and the differences in the living and ecological systems in which they live. Hence, Biology department has four-dimensional specialization in the study of zoology, botany, microbiology, and ecology, which is related to other sciences, theory, applied process and modern technology fields that meet the urgent and necessary human needs. Thus, today we are not talking about a single science, but a set of coherent sciences, embracing many disciplines and independent scientific branches, but it meets at one tributary to study the meaning of life and all its wealth in relation to living beings.
It starts with microorganisms, microbes, bacteria, viruses, animals and plants, and ends up with a connection to these organisms and studying them in depth. The Department of Life Sciences has continued to modernize its sciences to keep pace with the rapid development of the various branches of this science, and within its approach to the most modern biological sciences by expanding its specialties and introducing uptodate topics in its studies and in particular the research of graduate students commensurate with the tremendous scientific progress in the advanced universities through the diversity of research projects and scientific seminars, and thus became a scientific institution by dint of scientists and professors who qualified science in the universities of the developed world and returned to their homeland, faithful, carrying knowledge and culture, rejecting temptations and challenging the difficulties for this country.
Generations of scientists graduated at the hands of the elite professors evacuation Maprhawwa work with devotion and dedication in giving infinity to enrich scientific knowledge and culture in all scientific developments and new technologies. The Department of Life Sciences will be represented by its scientists and professors, a cell of bees gathering the essence of the life nectar from the gardens of this country, giving it to the mouths of its wonderful students with knowledge, culture, education and giving. The Department of Life Sciences now includes a number of specialized scientific laboratories that contain many modern scientific instruments and tools. There are two laboratories for the work of Hungarian biologists, a laboratory of zoology and a laboratory of botany, in addition to a herb containing many rare plants and is managed and supervised by one of the eminent scientists in this field, an ecology laboratory and a laboratory specialized in cellular genetics. Another laboratory specialized in PCR works as a modern unit to diagnose all organisms from In addition to a central laboratory that deals with chemical and biological analysis and testing, and measuring heavy metals, it provides its distinguished services to all researchers, graduate students and institutions. State and society. Finally, there is an environmental laboratory, which includes many advanced and modern equipment, which is prepared to serve the research of graduate students in all faculties of the University of Baghdad, Iraqi universities and other research of interest to the community. The Department of Life Sciences was a pioneer in the award of graduate studies where he began to register for the study of the Masters since 1966 - 1967 and the doctoral study since 1970 – 197, graduated from this section many of the scientists and professors who have received and continue to provide our country and universities and provide them with their knowledge and knowledge and dedication and dedication In all fields. The department continues to offer hundreds of bachelor's degrees in life sciences to work in hospitals, specialized scientific laboratories, and dozens of masters and doctorates. In the section now there are a number of specialized committees headed by the membership includes many scientists and specialized professors such as the Scientific Committee, the Committee of Graduate Studies and specialized committees to study the curriculum and the import of advanced scientific equipment and laboratory equipment.
The head of the Department of Life Sciences has led many scientists and researchers. The department also includes: 14 professors, 30 assistant professors, 45 teachers and 67 assistant teachers, in addition to many bachelor's degree holders, technicians and administrators. As well as (93) PhD students and (63) of the master's degree, all of them working in teaching and research, which teach them dear students science and culture, high morals and humility of scientists. The number of students in the preliminary studies is about (440) and the number of graduate students (248) of whom (134) for the master and (114) for the doctorate. The units of the network are available for use by students of primary and higher studies as well as teaching staff.
The units of the network are available for use by students of undergraduates and higher graduates studies as well as teaching staff. The Life Science Library, which contains a large number of books, periodicals and modern sources related to life sciences, as well as master's and doctoral dissertations. The students are trained in the preliminary studies on the end of the third phase and during the summer vacation in hospitals and health institutions, industrial and related process, to gain experience and scientific skill and to link their theoretical study with practical reality. The department has a cultural week where every week a symposium will be held on the latest developments in science related to life and ways to improve it. Therefore, the Department of Life Sciences represents a prominent scientific center in the Faculty of Science in our beloved university - Baghdad University
