CRN: 41509 4 Credit Hours Instructor: Afshan Ismat The purpose of this course is to introduce the structure and fuction of cells, and how structure and function drives organismal physiology and diversity. By the end of this course, through lecture and laboratory exercises, students should have an understanding of the basic components of cells, how cells and organisms transfer genetic information to future generations, how communication is integral to cellular and organismal function, and how cells and organisms generate and process energy to drive physiological funtions. In addition, students will continue to improve skills for scientific inquiry through activities designed to increase familiarity with the scientific literature and science terminology, improve skills to design and critically analyze experiments, foster ability to work with a scientific team, and provide opportunities to improve scientific writing. Any one topic covered in this course has enough material for a course of its own. However, this course will give basic overview of a series of selected topics that are meant to introduce students to the vast field of cellular and organismal biology and the use of biological science in life.

Small Influences of humans on the global environment has reached unprecedented levels, increasing the need for society to strive to live in a sustainable manner. Many issues facing the environment have a biological basis. Thus, an understanding of basic biology is necessary to understand and address many environmental issues. This course will cover the fundamental biology involved with five environmental issues at the global scale: climate change, excessive nutrient loading into ecosystems, agricultural production, chemical contaminants, and loss of biodiversity. Specific biological principles to be covered include energy and nutrient mass balance by organisms and ecosystems, homeostasis and organismal physiology, and population dyanmics and conservation biology.

Many issues facing the environment have a biological basis. Thus, an understanding of basic biology is necessary to understand and address many environmental issues. This course will cover the fundamental biology involved with five environmental issues at the global scale: climate change, excessive nutrient loading into ecosystems, agricultural production, chemical contaminants, and loss of biodiversity. Specific biological principles to be covered include energy and nutrient mass balance by organisms and ecosystems, homeostasis and organismal physiology, and population dyanmics and conservation biology. Prerequisite: C- or better in BIOL 208

CRN: 10102 2 Credit Hours Instructor: Staff The HIV/AIDS pandemic is now 30 years old. Remarkable progress has been made in learning about and combatting this virus, but HIV/AIDS has proved more difficult to treat successfully than many other diseases. This class will focus on why HIV/AIDS has been such a monumental scientific and social challenge. This course will include aspects such as the molecular biology of the HIV virus and its effects on human cells, a basic view of how the immune system works and how HIV disrupts that function, how epidemiological methods helped identify HIV as the causative agent of AIDS, and what social, political and economic challenges have been and are currently important in fighting the pandemic. We will approach these topics through discussion and investigation. All students will be expected to participate actively in class discussions. Prerequisite: Permission of the instructor
