About the major:

The undergraduate major in Molecular and Cell Biology (MCB) focuses on the study of molecular structures and processes of cellular life and their roles in the function, reproduction, and development of living organisms. This covers a broad range of specialized disciplines, such as biochemistry, microbiology, biophysics, molecular biology, genetics, cell physiology, cell anatomy, immunology, and neurobiology. The types of living organisms from which the departmental faculty draws its working materials are as diverse as its disciplinary specializations, ranging from viruses and microbes through plants, roundworms, annelids, arthropods, and mollusks, to fish, amphibia, and mammals. 

There are six emphases in MCB:

Biochemistry, Biophysics & Structural Biology Cell Biology, Development & Physiology Genetics, Genomics, Evolution & Development
Immunology & Molecular Medicine Molecular Therapeutics Neurobiology
