206L Summer 2009 Syllabus 6/4/09 -2- LABORATORY EXPERIMENTS IN BIOLOGY: STRUCTURE AND FUNCTION OF ORGANISMS Introduction Bio 206 deals with the structure and function of organisms. Obviously this covers a vast amount of information. It is impossible to treat this much material in depth in a single semester course. Therefore, we shall emphasize certain things that we consider to illustrate important biological principles. You will be exposed to a diversity of biological material, mainly in an experimental rather than a descriptive context. You should have either registered for or have credit for BIO 311D or BIO 214 in order to take BIO 206L. If this is not the case you should consult one of the instructors as soon as possible. During this course you will conduct exercises that illustrate some of the relationships between structure and function in organisms. You will write lab reports explaining your observations as well as their significance. You are required to attend lecture meetings associated with this course. They provide an important introduction/background for the lab exercises. You should
