Biology 003 - Introduction to Biology (4 units)
Introductory biology for non-majors with an emphasis on scientific methodology and basic biological principles. This course explores the differences between bacteria, fungi, plants and animals. Students will learn how organisms gain energy through metabolism, photosynthesis and cellular respiration. The nature of reproduction will be explained through cell division, genetics and inheritance. These concepts can then be tied to larger concepts of evolution, organismal diversity, and ecology.
Biology 006 - General Biology I (5 units)
This course is the first semester of general introduction to biological principles designed for biology majors. Lecture focuses on concepts which are common to all biological organisms. Biological molecules, cell structure and function, bio-energetics, molecular and organismal genetics, evolution, and biosystematics are discussed. Laboratory includes exercises illustrating lecture principles and procedures used in modern biotechnology. An additional hour is required which covers some of the tools necessary to becoming a professional biologist. Included is the writing of a curriculum vitae, writing of scientific papers, and readings on the history of biology.
