This course is intended for Biology majors or other students with an in-depth interest in the Biological Sciences. The course studies the universal biological processes of all organismal life with an emphasis upon the cellular level of organization. Topics include principles of biochemistry, cellular morphology and ultra structure, biochemical pathways and enzymes, cellular communication, classical and molecular genetics, gene control, embryology, immunology, and selected topics of animal physiology with emphasis on homeostatic control mechanisms. The laboratory component focuses on methodologies necessary for analyzing molecular, cellular and genetical problems like microscopy, spectrophotometry, graphing and statistical analysis, as well as recombinant DNA technologies. As part of the laboratory component students will design, execute and present in written and oral format an experimental research project. All aspects of the project will follow the format of a standard scientific investigation which includes the research, evaluation and appropriate incorporation of information already published in primary sources.
