Introduction

 The Institute of Biology of the College of Nyíregyháza was formed by the Departments of Zoology and Botany in 2005. Our main goal is to integrate our efforts in order to improve the quality of biology teaching and research. The ongoing researches in the institute involve biochemistry, physiology, microbiology, genetics, molecular biology, cell biology, ecology and hydro-biology.

Recently new educational and research groups were established:  the Educational Group, the Research Group of Ecology and Hydrobiology, and Microbiology Group.
The Educational Group coordinates the institute’s various educational tasks, organizes  the  educational processes, and conducts Student's Scientific  activities.
The members of the Research Group of Ecology and Hydrobiology perform researches in the field of the behavioral ecology, ornithology, botany, human biology and soil biology which all take place on the premises of  the institute, as well as in  areas of  hydro-biology.
The Microbiology group examines mainly wastewater treatment, soil biology, micro-biology of water, air and plants.
The staff of the Institute of Biology publish constantly, report on their result on national and international conferences.
 Within Biology the specialization of Hydro-biology, Bio-analytics and the previously running BSc course in Biology represent the  courses and specializations offered by our departments. The new biology BSc course train  professionals on these three specialized field of education. In the past years many award-winning thesis were written by the college students many of whom have successfully continued their studies at different universities on master-level training.
 
Regarding our future plans we find it of outmost importance to accredit  similar BSc  courses and  specializations in the field of Biology or related to biology.
 This will also affect positively the number of students  and  will also make  a more rational utilization  of the human  resources possible, at the same time will also broaden the practical nature of the courses.
