Best Universities for Biology in the World

Below is the list of best universities in the World ranked based on their research performance in Biology. A graph of 394M citations received by 9.49M academic papers made by 4,578 universities in the World was used to calculate publications' ratings, which then were adjusted for release dates and added to final scores.

We don't distinguish undergraduate and graduate programs nor do we adjust for current majors offered. You can find information about granted degrees on a university page but always double-check with an official site as it's constantly changing data.
