Bio 2960: Principles of Biology I

Professors: Barbara Kunkel and John Majors

The course provides an introduction to cellular, molecular and developmental biology. An understanding of cellular architecture and the properties of biological macromolecules will be integrated with a discussion of the flow of genetic information within cells. The final section of the course will cover investigation and manipulation of genetic information by molecular genetic technologies, as well as a discussion of developmental strategies employed by multicellular eukaryotes. Weekly labs reinforce concepts from lecture and explore common laboratory techniques and computer-based resources. Prereq: Chem 111 and Chem 112 (concurrently). Three hours of lecture and 2 hours of lab per week. 4 units.
