Course Descriptions

Course Descriptions for: BIO
Biology
BIO 100 - Basic Human Biology
Presents basic principles of human anatomy and physiology. Discusses cells, tissues, and selected human systems. Lecture 3 hours per week.
BIO 101 - General Biology I
Focuses on foundations in cellular structure, metabolism, and genetics in an evolutionary context. Explores the core concepts of evolution; structure and function; information flow, storage and exchange; pathways and transformations of energy and matter; and systems biology. Emphasizes process of science, interdisciplinary approach, and relevance of biology to society. Part I of a two-course sequence. Lecture 3 hours. Recitation and laboratory 3 hours. Total 6 hours per week.
BIO 102 - General Biology II
Focuses on diversity of life, anatomy and physiology of organisms, and ecosystem organization and processes in an evolutionary context. Explores the core concepts of evolution; structure and function; information flow, storage and exchange; pathways and transformations of energy and matter; and systems biology. Emphasizes process of science, interdisciplinary approach, and relevance of biology to society. Part II of a two-course sequence. Lecture 3 hours. Recitation and laboratory 3 hours. Total 6 hours per week.
BIO 141 - Human Anatomy and Physiology I
Integrates anatomy and physiology of cells, tissues, organs, and systems of the human body. Integrates concepts of chemistry, physics, and pathology. Lecture 3 hours. Laboratory 3 hours. Total 6 hours per week.
BIO 142 - Human Anatomy/Physiology II
Integrates anatomy and physiology of cells, tissues, organs, and systems of the human body. Integrates concepts of chemistry, physics, and pathology. Lecture 3 hours. Laboratory 3 hours. Total 6 hours per week.
BIO 145 - Hum Anatomy & Phy/Hlth Sci
Introduces human anatomy and physiology primarily to those planning to pursue an AAS degree in nursing. Covers basic chemical concepts, cellular physiology, as well as the anatomy and physiology of human organ systems. Lecture 3 hours. Laboratory 3 hours. Total 6 hours per week.
BIO 150 - Introductory Microbiology
Studies the general characteristics of microorganisms. Emphasizes their relationships to individual and community health. Lecture 3 hours, laboratory 3 hours. Total 6 hours per week.
BIO 205 - General Microbiology
Examines morphology, genetics, physiology, ecology, and control of microorganisms. Emphasizes application of microbiological techniques to selected fields. Prerequisites one year of college biology and one year of college chemistry or divisional approval. Lecture 3 hours. Recitation and laboratory 3 hours. Total 6 hours per week.
BIO 256 - General Genetics
Explores the principles of genetics ranging from classical Mendelian inheritance to the most recent advances in the biochemical nature and function of the gene. Includes experimental design and statistical analysis. Prerequisite BIO 101-102 or equivalent.
