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 read each exercise before coming to lab . You should check the class website daily week for special announcements concerning exams, review sessions, changes in deadlines, etc.

    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.
