BIOL 3010: Genetics and Molecular Biology
Credits: 3
What makes humans different from fruit flies? Why does your brain have neurons and not liver cells? This course is all about the answer to these questions: It's the genes! This course covers the chemical make-up of genes, how they're passed on through generations, how they're expressed and how that expression is regulated, how disruption in the structure and expression of genes arise and how those disruptions lead to cellular defects and disease. Prerequisite: Must have completed BIOL 2010 or BIOL 2100 or BME 2104 and either CHEM 1410 or CHEM 1810 or CHEM 1610. BIOL 3010 is not repeatable.
BIOL 4920: Independent Research in Biology
Credits: 2
Independent research for qualified undergraduates under the direction of a faculty member within the Biology Department. Prerequisite: Instructor Permission
BIOL 4930: Distinguished Major Thesis Research
Credits: 2
This course is the final semester of Independent Research for participants of the Biology Distinguished Majors Program. During this semester, students will complete their laboratory investigations, ultimately presenting the sum of their work in a written thesis. Prerequisite: Instructor Permission
BIOL 8010: Colloquium in Developmental Biology
Credits: 2
A weekly conference in which students present reports covering various aspects of development. May be repeated for credit. Prerequisite: Instructor permission.
BIOL 8270: Seven Habits of Highly Effective Graduate Students
Credits: 2
Weekly discussion to acclimate new graduate students to rigors of academic research in the Department of Biology. There will be an emphasis on time management, scientific writing, presentations, and work-life balance. A rotation of Biology faculty, students, and staff will contribute to the weekly discussion.
