Description of Course Content
The first of a three-part introductory biology sequence, this course focuses on the chemical and molecular basis of life, including metabolism, cell structure and function, and genetics. Laboratory experiments are designed to complement topics presented in lecture. Formerly listed as BIOL 1449; credit will not be given for both.
Note: Modern Biology is an integrative discipline, incorporating elements of Mathematics, Chemistry, Computer Science, and Writing. We expect that you have at least a basic understanding of each of these elements since you will be drawing on each for your experimental designs and report writing.
Student Learning Outcomes
* gain hands-on knowledge of cellular and molecular aspects of biology through demonstration and experimentation
* learn the scientific process by designing and conducting experiments
* become proficient at collecting, analyzing, and presenting data, in both written and oral formats
* develop critical thinking skills through development and design of experiments, and analysis of scientific results
* learn essential laboratory procedures and protocols
Attend every lab and participate in experiments and exercises. Show up prepared by reading the upcoming laboratory exercise and reviewing the previous lab. Turn in...
