First semester in a course sequence for all biology majors. The course will provide an introduction to biochemistry, cell biology, molecular biology, and animal physiology. Emphasis will be placed on quantitative learning and data analysis; weekly workshops will emphasize the construction and interpretation of graphs.
Prerequisites: Completion or concurrent enrollment in CHM 131 or equivalent
The second semester of the introductory sequence designed for majors in biology. Evolution Biodiversity, Physiology, Ecology and Conservation biology.
This is the lab course which accompanies the lecture course Principles of Biology II, Perspectives in Biology II and Intro to Organismal Evolutionary Biology. The content of the course is drawn from the lecture material. Topics include plant and animal diversity, biology of protista, animal behavior, bioinformatics, and physiology. Emphasis is placed on problem solving, critical thinking and experimental design. While this course is designed to accompany BIO 111 and 113, students taking these classes ARE NOT REQUIRED to register concurrently for BIO 117P. BIO 117P is strongly recommended for current or prospective Biology majors and is required for students taking BIO 115 and Biology majors. This lab courses is recommended for those intending to apply to medical school.
Prerequisites: Past or concurrent enrollment in BIO 111/113. Concurrent enrollment in BIO 115.
The course covers the basics of Mendelian and molecular genetics with a focus on genetic approaches to scientific questions and the molecular biology of the “ Central Dogma”. Recommended for most Biology majors. The optional companion lab for this course is BIO 198P. A student cannot receive credit of both BIO 190 and BIO 198.
Prerequisites: BIO 110 or BIO 112 and completion of CHM131 and 132.
Introduction to basic genetic theory and laboratory practices. Classical inheritance in eukaryotes, bacterial genetics and molecular technology techniques. Emphasis is on data analysis and experimental design.
Prerequisites: Concurrent with BIO 190/198 or after completion of BIO 190/198
This course focuses on normal function in a variety of systems in humans with some comparison to other mammals Topics include homeostatic regulation, various tissue and organ systems (endocrine, nervous, muscular, cardiovascular, respiratory, renal, digestive, and metabolic), and integration of function of those systems to allow complex function. Students must also register for a recitation. This course uses the same textbook as BIO 217 (Principles of Human Anatomy w/Lab)."
Prerequisites: BIO 110 or BIO 112 and BIO 111 or BIO 113 or permission of the instructor
This lab course reinforces topics introduced in the lecture course, BIO204, via human physiology laboratory exercises. In small groups students will measure a number of physiological variables via tools like EMG, ECG, and spirometry; design a unique research project; and present their findings via a written report and group presentation. Registration for BIO 204 during the same semester is suggested but not required.
Fundamental aspects of biochemistry, including biomolecular structure and catalysis, bioenergetics, protein folding, kinetic analysis of enzyme action and general intermediary metabolism.
Prerequisites: BIO 110 or BIO 112 and CHM 203 Biological Science Majors: Prior or Concurrent enrollment in BIO 190/198 and CHM 204 are strongly recommended.
