HISTOLOGY (BIO 542) -- SPRING 2010 Histology is the study of cells and tissues from the molecular to the organ level. It is an amalgam of classical cytology, cell biology, anatomy, and physiology. In this course we will strive to make clear and logical connections between the structures of vertebrate animal cells and tissues and their physiological functions. At the end of the course you should be able to deduce the function of a cell or tissue by knowing its structure, and vice versa. It is important that you have a good background in cell biology; BIO 315 (Intro to Cell Biology) is a prerequisite for Histology. Knowledge of animal physiology is also of benefit, although not as important as cell biology.
