  • Credit: 1.0 course (4 semester hours)
  • Course Travel: No

Non-laboratory version of Biology 201L. Introduces major concepts in biology through the lens of molecular biology. Molecular mechanisms that comprise the Central Dogma and variants. DNA structure and function, replication, transcription, and translation. Protein synthesis, folding, structure and function. Supporting topics related to the structure of cells, metabolism and energetics. Integration of physical and quantitative principles to molecular biology. Relevance to human diseases and the biotechnology industry. Prerequisite: Chemistry 21, 21L, 101DL, 110DL, or 201DL. Not open to students who have taken Biology 201L/201LA. 

CHEMISTRY 201DLA. ORGANIC CHEMISTRY I -CANCELED

  • Curriculum Code: NS, STS

  • Course Travel?: No
  • Prerequisites: Chemistry 101DL, or 110DL, or 21

The structures and reactions of the compounds of carbon and the impact of selected organic compounds on society. Laboratory: techniques of separation, organic reactions and preparations, and systematic identification of compounds by their spectral and chemical properties. 

BIOLOGY 278LA./ENVIRON 778LA COMPARATIVE PHYSIOLOGY OF MARINE ANIMALS - CANCELED 

This course is not able to run 

  • Instructors: Drs. Jason Somarelli & Andreas Fahlman
  • Curriculum Code: NS, R, W
  • Credit: 1.0 course (4 semester hours)
  • Course Travel?: No
  • Cross Listing: ENVIRON 278LA
  • Prerequisites: AP biology, introductory biology, or consent of the instructor, and introductory chemistry.

Physiology of marine animals with emphasis on comparisons between marine vertebrates and humans. Focus on physiological processes including gas exchange, circulation, osmoregulation, metabolism, thermoregulation, endocrine, neural control and sensory systems. Lectures and laboratories illustrate the methodology, analysis techniques, and written reporting of physiological research.)

This course fulfills the structure/function requirement for Biology majors and the Organismal Structure/Function requirement for Environmental Science majors (BS) and the marine science section for Environmental Science and Policy Majors (AB). 

Additional Notes

The summer course will focus on the molecular genetics and physiology of marine animals with emphasis on comparisons between marine vertebrates and humans. Focus on physiological processes including gas exchange, circulation, osmoregulation, metabolism, thermoregulation, endocrine, neural control and sensory systems and their underlying genetics, including gene structure across species, gene gains and losses, and molecular adaptation to the marine environment. Lectures and laboratories illustrate the methodology, analysis techniques, and written reporting of molecular biology and physiological research.

DATA AND STATISTICAL INFERENCE (STA 101LA) - CANCELED

  • Instructor: Jordan Bryan
  • Curriculum Codes: QS, R, STS
  • Credit: 1.0 course (4 semester hours)
  • Course Travel?: No

Data Analysis and Statistical Inference. Introduction to statistics as a science of understanding and analyzing data. Themes include data collection, exploratory analysis, inference, and modeling. Focus on principles underlying quantitative research in social sciences, humanities, and public policy. Research projects teach the process of scientific discovery and synthesis and critical evaluation of research and statistical arguments. Readings give perspective on why in 1950, S. Wilks said “Statistical thinking will one day be as necessary a qualification for efficient citizenship as the ability to read and write.” See department website for placement information. Not open to students with credit for Statistical Science 102 or higher.
