Course Description

This course introduces the principles and concepts of biology. Emphasis is placed on basic biological chemistry, cell structure and function, metabolism and energy transformation, genetics evolution, classification, and other selected topics. Upon completion, students
should be able to demonstrate understanding of life at the molecular and cellular levels.

Prerequisites: none

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this course, you should be able to do the following:

  1. Demonstrate knowledge of the basic principles of chemistry as they relate to atomic
    structure, the formation of chemical bonds, types of molecules and compounds and the classes, structures, and functions of biologically important molecules.
    Demonstrate knowledge of cellular biology with emphasis on cell ultrastructure and function and selected aspects of cellular physiology.
  2. Demonstrate knowledge of basic energy transformations in cells including the concept of free energy, laws of thermodynamics, ATP formation and function, and the processes of
    photosynthesis and cellular respiration.
    Display competency in analyzing how cells reproduce for growth, repair, and gamete production.
  3. Demonstrate knowledge of molecular genetics including nucleic acid structure, their role as informational molecules and the mechanisms of replication, transcription, translation, and gene expression.
  4. Demonstrate knowledge of aspects of microbial genetics, viral replication, the role of viruses and oncogenes in cancer, mechanisms of gene expression in prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells and the procedures, products and current as well as future trends in biotechnology.
  5. Demonstrate knowledge of Mendelian genetics by means of solving genetic problems and by application of important concepts including Mendel’s laws and monohybrid and dihybrid crosses.
  6. Demonstrate knowledge of modern genetics including multiple alleles and human blood group inheritance, gene interactons, sex determination, sex-linked inheritance, autosomal and sex chromosomal abnormalities.
  7. Demonstrate knowledge of the mechanisms and components involved in the evolution of organisms.
