Biology (BIO)

General Biology presents an overview of many important topics in the natural sciences today and provides relevant background material from the physical sciences. It traces life from its beginning (cells) to the development of multi-cellular organisms. It covers topics such as evolution, the cell, macromolecules, energy relationships, inheritance, molecular genetics, biotechnology, and body systems.
Corequisite: BIO 109

General Biology presents an overview of many important topics in the natural sciences today and provides relevant background material from the physical sciences. It traces life from its beginning (cells) to the development of multi-cellular organisms. It covers topics such as taxonomy, the cell, macromolecules, photosynthesis, inheritance, molecular genetics, and body systems. This class includes a 1 hour lecture and a 2 hour lab session. The lecture hour will be an expansion of the lecture content covered in the co-requisite class BIO 108 - information needed to carry out experiments in the 2 hour hands-on laboratory experience.
Corequisite: BIO 108
Course Syllabus
Basic cellular structure, tissue organization, physiological process, reproduction, and genetics are studied. Special attention is given to selected zoological specimens with particular emphasis upon man.
Course Syllabus
This two-semester course acquaints students with the basic properties of living systems: metabolism, growth, responsiveness and reproduction at the cellular and organism levels as illustrated by assorted plants and animals. Two terms required. Corequisite for BIO 210 is ENG 101 Prerequisite for BIO 220 is BIO 210

Course Syllabus
This introductory course includes the study of structure, metabolism, environmental significance and evolution of micro-organisms. The laboratory will emphasize basic bacteriological techniques of identification and culture.
Prerequisite: BIO 220
Course Syllabus
Genetics is designed as a one-semester course covering the fundamental concepts of classical, molecular, and human genetics. The student gains a background that facilitates a greater understanding of recent advances in molecular biology and human inheritance.
Prerequisite: BIO 220 Corequisite: CHE 202 or 220
Course Syllabus
The goal of this course is to provide students with a detailed understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying cellular processes introduced in BIO 210/220 — the structure, function and specializations of the cell. This will be accomplished through a combination of lecture and laboratory sessions providing both theory and application. The course will include study of subcellular structure and function, gene expression, protein activity, cell regulation and cell-to-cell communication.
Prerequisite: BIO 220, Corequisite: CHE 230
Course Syllabus
Micro-organisms pathogenic to humans: their characteristics, pathogenicity and modes of transmission are studied. Instruction includes a study of the sterile technique and maintenance of the sterile field. Required in selected programs in the Health Sciences; available to other students through Departmental approval.
Prerequisites: BIO 426 and CHE 118, or CHE 121, or departmental approval
Course Syllabus
This two-semester course explores the human body as an integrated, functional complex of systems. Terminology, structure and function of each organ-system, with emphasis on their interrelationships, are explained. Required of students in the health services technologies; available to all other students for elective credit.
Prerequisite for BIO 426 is BIO 425. Two terms required. Prerequisite: CHE 118 or CHE 121, or departmental approval NOTE: BIO 425 and BIO 426 do not meet the science requirements in the liberal arts curriculum.
