Temple University Department of Biology College of Science & Technology Biology 2212 Fall, 2017 Lecture time: M W F, 11:00-11:50 AM Lecture location: 133 Biology Life Science Instructor: Rhonda H. Nicholson, Ph.D., Assistant Professor for Biology Office address: 402B Biology-Life Sciences Office phone: 215-204-9547 Email address: [email protected] Office hours: Monday and Wednesday, 2:30 – 4:00 PM (or by appointment) Textbook: Biology, 11 th edition, (2017) Urry, Cain, Wasserman, Minorsky, and Reece C OURSE I NFORMATION Biology 2212 examines living systems at the most fundamental levels. Topics include chemical bonds, the unique properties of water, carbon chemistry, the structures and functions of macromolecules, as well as the thermodynamic and kinetic properties of enzymes. At the cellular level, we will study the components of cell- to-cell communication, cellular signaling, the regulation of the cell cycle, and cell motility. An examination of the processes of gene expression and DNA replication lead into studies on chromosome behavior during meiosis and the field of genetics. This course finishes by surveying two compelling biological processes: aging and cancer. Course and Learning Objectives Develop a strong foundation in biological chemistry, cell biology, and genetics Apply knowledge of fundamental principles gained in this course to more advanced studies in biochemistry, cell biology and genetics Communication : E-mail is the preferred form of communication outside of lecture and office hours. It is very important that you include your name, Temple I.D. number, and subject in your e-mail. Because I check my e-mail regularly, you should receive a response within 24 hours of your first message. Please direct all questions about the lab to your lab instructor or the laboratory coordinator, Dr. Dan Spaeth ([email protected]). It is imperative that you obtain AccessNet and a Temple University e-mail account. This allows access to the Blackboard site through TU portal. Lecture power points, study guides, grades, as well as important course announcements are posted on Blackboard. (Obtain an e-mail account by going to . Alternatively, visit the Computer Services Help Desk, Room 106, TECH Center, 12th St. & Montgomery Ave. Call 204-8000 for more information.) Prerequisites: The prerequisites of this course are Chemistry 1031 and Chemistry 1032, or the equivalent, with a grade of C or better. Math 1021 (college algebra) and Math 1022 (pre-calculus) are also necessary; you must be able to use logarithms, exponents, and perform simple algebra. Co-requisite : You must be enrolled in Chemistry 2251 (Organic Chemistry), or have completed organic chemistry with a grade of C- or better.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
