Tropical Ecology Expeditions
The students of the Faculty of Science have already had three opportunities to experience tropical research in one of the remotest and least explored countries in the world – Papua New Guinea
Human hidden in fruit flies
Fruit flies are very useful model organisms for genetics and developmental biology. They rapidly multiply and it is now quite easy to manipulate with their genetic information – we can easily turn on and off their genes or visualize the gene activity.
We study interactions in mammal societies as well as adaptations of mammals to the subterranean environment
Archaeobotanical research in Prague castle and Hradčany
Archaeobotanists from Faculty of Science on University of South Bohemia cooperate long time on analyses from Prague castle with the Institute of Archaeology of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech republic, Prague, v.v.i.
“Sweet” ticks - glycobiology of ticks and its potential in management of tick-borne pathogens
We study glycoproteins, which affect the success of tick feeding on the host (such as humans), or the transmission of pathogens to the host.
Secret stock of organic carbon in arctic permafrost. Time bomb of global climate change?
The Hemiparasitic Orobanchaceae Research Team at the Department of Botany, Faculty of Science, University of South Bohemia work mostly on root‑hemiparasitic plants, i. e. green photosynthesic plants that however parasitize hosts by attaching to their roots.
About the faculty
The Faculty of Science is a successor of the Faculty of Biological Sciences founded in 1991. FS offers undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate study in an array of biological disciplines, and since 2007 extended by several other fields of science (chemistry, physics, mathematics, informatics).
