PD credit awarded only upon completion of BIOL 100 and 102. Prereq: MATH 125 and CHEM 102 or equivalent 7 hrs (3 lec, 3 lab, 1 disc), 4.5 cr. spring only BIOL 102 Principles of Biology II GER 2/E PD/C or D Taxonomy; homeostasis; internal transport and gas exchange in plants and animals; plant hormones; osmoregulation; mechanisms of action in the muscular, nervous and neuroendocrine systems; the senses, behavior; ecology. $5 materials fee required. PD credit awarded only upon completion of BIOL 100 and 102. Prereqs: BIOL 100 or equivalent 7 hrs (3 lec, 3 lab, 1 disc), 4.5 cr. fall only BIOL 105 Introduction to Genome Biology Life and Physical Sciences (LPS) A genome is the total genetic content of an organism. Driven by breakthroughs such as the decoding of the first human genome and rapid DNA-sequencing technologies, biomedical sciences are undergoing a rapid and profound transformation into a highly data-intensive field, which requires familiarity with concepts in both biology and computer science. Genome information is revolutionizing virtually all aspects of biology and medicine and will lead to major advances such as more efficient production of renewable energy, better cures for cancers, and longer and healthier life expectancy. This course will introduce genome-sequencing technologies, explore hundreds of genome projects online, and discuss both the benefits and challenges (e.g., ethical and legal) of the genomic revolution to society. 3hrs 3 cr. BlOL 120 Anatomy and Physiology I Cell structure and function; histology; nervous, muscular and skeletal systems; integument. Required for admission to the nursing program. Not accepted for credit toward the biology major. Prereqs: CHEM 100, 101 coreqs: CHEM 120, 121 7 hrs (3 lec, 4 lab), 4.5 cr. fall only BlOL 122 Anatomy and Physiology II Structure and function of circulatory, digestive, excretory, endocrine and reproductive systems. Basic concepts of metabolism, embryology. Required for admission to the nursing program. Not accepted for credit toward the biology major. Prereq: BIOL 120 or equiv. 7 hrs (3 lec, 4 lab), 4.5 cr. spring only Biol 125 Human Biology GER 2E Human Biology BIOL 125 is an introductory laboratory course for non-biology majors. This course explores the biology that underlies current health and disease topics (including diabetes, cancer, sexually transmitted diseases, nutrition). Using a topics approach, the course provides a survey of human anatomy and physiological function, along with the biological principles of genetics and cellular interactions that comprise our current understanding of the human organism. Laboratory exercises will introduce students to a scientific approach in studying human disease and physiology. The credits from this course will not count towards the Biology Major. Fulfills GER 2E requirement. No Prerequisites 6 hours 4.5 credits
