Course Descriptions

The biology program will produce biologists with the chemistry, mathematics, and physics background needed to solve biotechnological problems in the coming decades. Those students wishing to strengthen their engineering skills can earn the area minor in biomedical engineering.

BIO 205 - Cellular Physiology

The flow of information in biological systems provides a framework for detailed discussion of cell structure and function, with particular attention paid to the physiology of excitable cells. Cellular communication and the interactions of cells in tissues and the immune system are also examined. Reproduction and organismal development will also be addressed at the cellular level. A student who earns credit for BIO205 cannot earn credit for BIO210 or BIO230 without departmental consent.
