COURSE OBJECTIVE The topics covered in this course are: cell biology, molecular biology, metabolism, and physiology of selected tissue and organ systems. Students who successfully complete this course will have an appreciation for the complexities of biological structure and function. This course with BIO 187 serves as a gateway to more advanced courses in the life sciences by introducing students to major concepts and theories of biology. The course is also valuable for students preparing to take admissions tests for medical, dental, or veterinary medical schools. COURSE THEMES 1. DNA contains the genetic code that governs cellular function 2. The fundamental unit of life is the cell. 3. Multicellular organisms organize cells into specialized tissues and organs 4. Cell and organismal functions are regulated by control systems 5. Diseases are aberrations of normal structure and function 6. Studying what is abnormal tells us about what is normal. COURSE WEBSITE The course will use Blackboard for posting course information. Blackboard works both as a course website and as an interactive forum and is easy to navigate. Access Blackboard at http://my.asu.edu . Please note that the course website is intended to be a supplement to course material, not a replacement of it. You are responsible for all material delivered in lecture and lab. Log in to Blackboard regularly to view announcements for the course. The syllabus is posted under Course Information . It is essential that you learn how to use Blackboard. If you have any questions or need help using it, please get assistance from your TA in the first lab period.
