  • BI-105

    Anatomy & Physiology I/Lab

    The fundamental facts and concepts of the normal structure and function of the human body are presented. Specific topics include integumentary, skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems. Laboratory work includes microscopic examination of cells and tissues, dissection of preserved organ specimens and the cat and rat, and investigations of various human physiological processes.
  • BI-106

    Anatomy & Physiology II/Lab

    The fundamental facts and concepts of the normal structure and function of the human body are presented. Specific topics include circulatory, respiratory, urinary, digestive, endocrine, and reproductive systems. Laboratory work includes microscopic examination of cells and tissues, dissection of preserved organ specimens and the cat and rat, and investigations of various human physiological processes. For BI 106?prerequisite: An earned grade of C- or greater in BI 105.
  • BI-108

    General Microbiology/Lab

    The general characteristics of microbes and their relationship to humans are explored, with emphasis on those that are pathogenic to humans and those that are of public health significance. This includes the biological characteristics of microbes, antimicrobial methods, and concepts of immunity, diagnosis, and treatment and prevention of infection. The laboratory experience familiarizes the student with microbiological methodology and aseptic technique.
  • BI-203

    Human Biology/Lab

    A study of the structural and functional relationships of human organisms. Emphasis will be placed on both the normal and abnormal functioning of each system.
  • BI-204

    Sci. in Perspective:Biology

    This course explores the basic principles of life for students who, as informed individuals, will need to develop their awareness of the biological aspects of personal and societal choices. Emphasis will be placed upon women in relation to the themes of evolution, organization, ecology, and the societal impact of biotechnology.
  • BI-209

    Intro.Microbiology/Lab

    This course provides the student of biological sciences with an introduction to microbiology, and some of its applications. The major topics are: structure, function, taxonomy, and growth of prokaryotes and eukaryotes; microbial metabolism; prokaryotic genetics; viruses; the role of microbes in disease, and host defenses; and microbial ecology. The laboratory will study the practice and principles of microbial analysis, characterization and identification. Prerequisite BI103.
