About Professor Rajab

I have been teaching biology at Cypress College since 1998. My main areas of interest are marine biology (specifically the biology and physiology of dinoflagellates) and molecular genetics.

I teach the following courses for majors: Cell and Molecular Biology (BIOL 174 C), Genetics (BIOL 277 C), and Molecular Biology (BIOL 278 C). I also teach Marine Biology (BIOL 122 C) on occasion.

This is an exciting time to consider a major and career in biology. New discoveries in genetics are changing the way we think about how life works. Also, there is incredible growth in opportunities for cross-discipline work. Biology is now informing areas such as engineering and physics while being informed by these fields as well.

I hope to see you soon in one of my classes.

Recommended Course

BIOL 174 C Cell and Molecular Biology

If you are new to college and you are interested in majoring in biology then this is the class for YOU. We will explore the awesome world of the cell and how life is structured at the micro and molecular level. We’ll also learn about the basics of genetics (or why you DON’T look like your parents and siblings).
