Biology 120 learning outcomes Chapter 1: An Introduction to Biology 1.1. Identify and explain characteristics of life and give examples of each. (Knowledge, comprehension, and application) 1.2. Define all levels of organization of life from simplest to most complex. Give examples of each level. Relate branches of biology to the study of life at different levels. (Knowledge, comprehension, and application) 1. 3. Relate evolution to unity and diversity of life. Distinguish between two mechanisms of evolutionary change: vertical descent with mutation and horizontal gene transfer and give examples of each. (Knowledge, comprehension, application) 4. Define taxonomy. Identify the major categories of classification in hierarchical order. Describe binomial nomenclature. Give two examples. (Knowledge) 1.5 Distinguish between the three Domains and the kingdoms within Domain Eukarya on the basis of cell type (prokaryote, eukaryote) , number of cells, nutrition, and types of organisms. (Knowledge) 1.6. Define gene, genome, genomics, protein, and proteomics. Explain the critical functions of genes and proteins to life and discuss the relationship of genes to proteins. (Knowledge, comprehension) 1.7. Explain the nature of science, discovery–based science, hypothesis-testing science, and a theory. ( Knowledge and comprehension ) 1.8 Describe the scientific method including: problem, observations, hypothesis, prediction, experiment (control group, experimental group, variable, data, statistics), results, conclusion, and communication. Apply this understanding to examples of the scientific method. (Knowledge, comprehension, application) 1.9 Define taxonomy and systematics. (Knowledge) 1.10. Identify the major categories of classification in hierarchical order. Describe binomial nomenclature. Give two examples. (Knowledge, comprehension, and application) 1.11.
