Project must be approved by the Honors Committee, Department of Biological Sciences. These topics include the organization of the human body; muscle and bone; the nervous system including the special senses ; the cardiovascular system, respiration; digestion; metabolism; excretion; fluid, electrolyte, and acid-base balance; the endocrine system; reproduction and genetics. In most cases, there is no one right answer, but a series of choices that can be guided by ethical considerations. The course emphasizes metabolic features that are common for all bacteria or for large groups of organisms and is intended for students in many different departments who need an understanding of bacterial physiology.
Each section begins by describing fundamental commonalities of a reproductive event in a variety of species. A key topic will be tracking down genes involved in factors such as the increase in human intelligence. Background in cell biology, psychobiology, physiology or anatomy is recommended. In every area, we will discuss the scientific challenges, but also the ethical and societal implications. I can label the pig on the pictures from the and other handouts. Each student practices with Prof. Techniques used for these experiments include electrophoresis, chromatography, and the Western blot procedure.
Examples from pathophysiology encourage application of knowledge to predict symptoms of disease and rationale for treatment. Assignments include a Plan of Study, a resume, and one written paper evaluating the career path of one alumni speaker and describing the students response to the presentation. Bacteriophage and their role in the environment will also be addressed. Over the course of the semester, students will develop their own science communication project springing from a scientific research topic of their choice. Are you ready for the Lab Practical? This includes making careful observations, accurately recording, organizing, and analyzing data and formulating reasonable databased conclusions. An experimental approach to a variety of topics is emphasized. There are specific parts to its anatomy that must be studied.
Topics include: hormone structure and mechanism of action and the role of hormones in regulating homeostasis, growth, development, and reproduction. Regular weekly help sessions run by both the professor and student aids will be arranged to provide the chance to ask questions and discuss particular points in greater depth than the large lecture format permits. Comments: Although designed for students in biochemistry and biophysics, this course is also appropriate for upper level undergraduates and graduate students in the areas of chemistry and physics who are interested in the applications of physical methods to biological problems. This course is designed primarily for students interested in professional careers in which a knowledge of molecular biology, as it pertains to growth control and human cancer, would be useful. What test would you use to test for starch? Also study your drawings in the lab manual. We continue with treatments of bioenergetics and biosynthesis, and then spend the second half of the course on signal transduction, intercellular communication, cell division and the cell cycle, the cytoskeleton, and cell motility.

Although taught as a lecture, students should be able to take this knowledge back to the laboratory to help them in their research efforts. A help session is held every Thursday night at 6. The students will a Explore teaching methodologies, and address obstacles to teaching evolution b Examine how student misconceptions about evolution can be raised and addressed, c Understand how assessment strategies are integrated into inquiry-based science lessons, d Examine how questions facilitate diverse student thinking about and discussion of science, e Identify what it takes to develop a respectful, productive science learning environment, and f Understand legal and professional support for teaching evolution. It will introduce fundamental ecological theory and empiricism, and demonstrate their application to practical issues concerning effects of environmental change, at each level of organization from the individual to the ecosystem. By the end of the course students should have knowledge of these molecular processes and should be able to design and analyze experiments dealing with these topics.
This is not a first course in molecular biology. It is recommended that you view the frog model before seeing the pictures, just so that you will get an idea of what you are looking at. Topics will include neuronal and glial structure, axonal transport, electrical properties of neurons, the ionic basis of the action potential, ion channel structure and function, synaptic release, neurotransmitters and neurohormones, neurotransmitter receptors and transduction mechanisms, sensory receptors, neural induction, patterning of the embryonic nervous system, neural growth and trophic factors, neural stem cells, axon guidance, and synaptic plasticity during development. Until recently, most of these have been microorganisms, but technological and computational progress has made it progressively easier and cheaper to sequence the genomes of higher organisms.
