This course is designed for non-majors. Students electing to take this course in order to meet their general education requirement for a laboratory science must take both BIO110 and BIO110L in the same semester. The course explores the many ways in which problems facing modern humans can be better understood and addressed through study of the biological sciences. Thus, the course is concerned with the basic biochemistry and cellular structure of all living organisms, genetics, anatomy and physiology of the body, disease, evolution, ecology and environmental issues

This course examines the role of statistics in the design, conduct and interpretation of biological research. Beginning with descriptive and inferential statistics, it proceeds through one and two-sample hypothesis testing, analysis of variance, linear regression, correlation, goodness of fit and contingency table analyses. Special attention is directed to the proper use of statistical software in data exploration and analysis.

An in-depth study of the structural and functional nature of the cell based on its molecular makeup. Emphasis will be placed on both biological and molecular technology.

This course examines how the various systems of the human body function and builds upon biologic principles presented in first-year biology courses. Designed as a service course for nonmajors, this course may not be used towards hours in the Biology or Environmental Sciences majors.

Introduction to general principles and techniques of the study of micro-organisms of air, water, foods and soils, and relationship of such organisms to health and disease in plants and animals.

Study of somatic and inherited mutations that promote carcinogenesis, the development of genetic testing for cancer, and molecular targets for cancer therapy.

This course is a continuation of the sequence which begins with BIO 363 and covers the remaining physiological systems including cardiovascular, immune respiratory, urinary digestive, and reproductive. Cadavers and live animal models continue to enhance lab exploration. Required of Athletic Training Majors.

This course is a companion to BIO 364 for students who wish to qualify for BIO 403, Cadaver Prosection, for the following Fall. Students will develop dissection skills on preserved cats, and will be tested on cat anatomy. Students will assist in conducting tours of the Cadaver Lab for local high school students and other interested parties.
