You are required to have an active, working email account. In the event of a major campus emergency, course requirements, deadlines and grading percentages are subject to changes that may be necessitated by a revised semester calendar or other circumstances beyond the instructor’s control. For example, a class meeting may be conducted remotely using Blackboard tools in the case of a weather emergency. Any information about changes in this course will be sent to your Purdue email. You are responsible for making sure your inbox is not filled up and can accept mail and attachments from me or TAs.

The underlying cellular and molecular basis for these processes will be emphasized. In particular, the transport of molecules and small ions through biological membranes will be studied. This will require an understanding of membrane structure, diffusion, electrical potentials and other physical and chemical principles. In addition to the specific topics covered, homework assignments will ask you to connect what you learn to both current and historical research endeavors, to prepare you for further study in the Department of Biological Sciences. BIOL 13100 is the second course in the Biological Sciences Core sequence, and most students are biology majors. Well-prepared students from other areas are welcome, assuming that they plan to take the second year of the core (BIOL 27000 and 28000). BIOL 12100 and 13100 are not intended as a terminal two-semester sequence. @#AB7C HC!7ITCG Get lecture materials and keep up with assignments on Blackboard....
