Concepts and Methods
Introduction to the study of biology, focusing on how
biologists know things and study the world of life, with
emphases on cell biology, genetics, ecology and
evolution. First course required for biology majors.
Four hours of lecture/laboratory, two hours online per
week. Meets General Education IVA or IVB (Prior to Fall
Oct4 protein modeling
XIAP protein modeling
Focuses on the structure and function of eukaryotic
cells. Topics covered include enzyme kinetics, membrane
transport, cell signaling, intercellular protein
trafficking, cellular respiration, mitosis and meiosis,
the cell cycle, and cancer. Prerequisites: BIOL 210 and
CHEM 221 or 12 credits of biology. Three hours lecture,
three hours laboratory per week.
Blended lecture and laboratory-based exploration of
biochemical techniques commonly used in industrial and
academic laboratories. Demonstrates the relationship
between structure and function of biomolecules.
Cross-listed with CHEM 419. Cannot receive credit for
both BIOL 440 and CHEM 419. Prerequisites: BIOL 350 and
370, and CHEM 221; or pre/co-requisite CHEM 418. Six
hours per week.
