BIO 103 An Introduction to Biotechnology, offered every Fall
Gene therapy, genetic modification, cloning, stem cells, and vaccines are covered in this course. Lectures and four supplemental laboratory activities use modern equipment and techniques to illustrate core concepts which class discussions relate to health, society, and public policy. Not for biology major credit.
BIO 447 Readings in Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology, offered every semester
Tutorial readings in the biological sciences. These courses may be repeated, but not more than two credits may be used toward biology major requirements. Limit of one topic per semester.
BIO 487 Research in Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology, offered every semester
In these courses, the student works under the supervision of a faculty member in developing an individual project that makes use of the knowledge and techniques acquired in previous courses. The student prepares an appropriate report on the project. Any of the courses may be taken for more than two semesters, but no more than four credits of research may be used for biology major requirements. Limit of one topic per semester.
BIO 521 Laboratory Curriculum Development, offered every semester
Teachers and pre-service teachers enrolled in this course will design, develop, test, troubleshoot and document hands-on laboratories for middle school and high school students in the biological sciences. Materials developed will be appropriated for the age group which the teacher serves and incorporated into the appropriate place in biology curricula. The teacher or pre-service teacher will gain confidence in the laboratory by executing all aspects of the project. Participants will share and disseminate new materials through workshops and publications.
