The purpose of this course is to introduce the structure and function 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 functions. 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. Prerequisite: c- or above in BIOL 207 or a C- in any BIOL 100 level course.

Influences of humans on the global environment have 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 dynamics and conservation biology. Prerequisite: Completion of BIOL 207 or BIOL 208 or any 100 level GEOL or CHEM 112 or CHEM 115 or permission of the instructor.

This interdisciplinary course focuses on infectious pathogens of humans, including their genetics, cell biology, physiology, host pathogenicity, evolution and treatments, prevention and epidemiology. Major pathogens of concern for clinicians and healthcare workers, including viral, bacterial and eukaryotic disease agents, as well as their transmission mechanisms are surveyed. Impacts of infectious diseases on healthcare systems in the U.S. and global contexts will also be explored. Lab consists of acquiring foundational skills necessary to understand how we study pathogens at different biological levels, including fundamental microbiological and epidemiological methods. This is an introductory course is designed to serve students form biology and non-biology majors interested in entering a health professions including nursing, physician assistant, dental-related professions etc. PREREQUSITES: C- or better in CHEM 100 or CHEM 111 or CHEM 112 or CHEM 115 , AND C- or better in BIOL 101 or BIOL 105 or BIOL 207.

One Hundred Years of Pandemics: Deconstructing HIV, Influenza, and Coronavirus. This class will explore the major pandemics of the last century. In this seminar course, students will explore principles and themes common to modern pandemics. We will emphasize basic principles of virus pathogenesis, biological responses, emergence, evolution, and transmission of the viral diseases that resulted in pandemics. Student will examine responses to pandemics through a biological lens, critically examining claims and the roles of science, technology and society. We will examine how social, political, cultural, and material conditions shape the scientific work and response to pandemics, and debate what science can - and cannot - do in the face of an emerging pandemic.

This course will examine the molecular, cellular, and organismal aspects of the human immune system. The goal is to arrive at a clear, memorable understanding of how the immune system protects us from disease, and what can go wrong when it is either overly active or not active enough. The format will consist of less traditional lecturing and more active learning, supported by the instructor. Classroom periods will involve collaborative and creative work among students to collectively improve everyone’s learning and understanding. A significant amount of independent work outside the classroom is also required. This course does not include a laboratory component.

An advanced exploration of how soil, oceanic, and human microbiomes are adapting to changes in global climate, modern ways of life, and increased global connectivity. The course will focus on microbiological processes, but implications for food security, policy, and medicine will also be discussed. This will be a seminar-style course focused on primary literature and will include an independent laboratory research project. Prerequisites: A minimum grade of C- in BIOL 209 and any two 300-level BIOL courses. ESCI 310 may substitute for one of the 300-level BIOL courses.

Over 50% of the global population lives in cities and the rate of urbanization is predicted to increase. As a result, urban centers are expanding and increasingly peri-urban farms are transitioning to outer-ring suburbs. The development of peri-urban farmland is seemingly at odds to maintain human food security for a growing population. This course will explore fundamental linkages and feedbacks between urban and rural land use, ecosystem and human health, and sustainability. To investigate alternate land use outcomes for peri-urban and urban landscapes, we will expand ongoing partnerships with urban and rural partners to investigate the environmental, social, and economic impact of diversifying peri-urban landscapes to increase local and regional ecosystem resiliency. Prerequisites: Completion of any two (2) 300-level BIOL courses or permission of instructor.
