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: Concurrent or previous enrollment in CHEM 112 or CHEM 115 and C- or above in BIOL 207

All the food we eat is ultimately derived from other biological organisms, and we have daily direct experience of the biological world through eating, though we don’t usually think of it that way. This course will use the cooking and eating of food as a lens to gain an integrative look at major aspects of biology. Topics will include the transformation of raw ingredients into more appealing and nutritious forms by application of heat or microbial fermentation, food-related health issues such as allergies, sensitivities, and toxicities, and the sensory experience of eating. Students will also have the chance to explore their own food-related interests as they pertain to Biology. This course is taught fully online and will have no in-person meetings, though there will be collaborative work and some synchronous sessions. Prerequisites: BIOL 207, 208, and a minimum grade of C- in BIOL 209, or permission of the instructor.

This course studies the mammalian immune system emphasizing the genetic and cellular basis of the immune response. Basic immunological concepts will be used to explore the mechanisms of transplantation rejection, autoimmunity, AIDS, and other topics of interest. Four laboratory hours per week. Prerequisites: BIOL 207, BIOL 208 and a minimum grade of C- in BIOL 209.
