BIOL 1301: GENERAL BIOLOGY I SPRING 2011 COURSE PREQUISITES: Credit or enrollment in Biol. 1101 , Eng. 1301, and Math 1301 (or other math course at a level above College Algebra) COURSE CONTENT/ DESCRIPTION: This course is designed for students who plan to take advanced level courses in biology and microbiology, such as science majors. Topics include the scientific method, chemical and physical basis of life, cell structure and function, cell division, cell biochemistry, heredity, and the molecular basis for heredity in both eukaryotes and prokaryotes. This course counts as 3 semester credit hours and should be taken in conjunction with the Biol 1101 laboratory course. COURSE OBJECTIVES: This class is a foundation course for all other biology courses. As such, the goal of the course is for student mastery of the topics covered so that the student is prepared for successive biology courses. Mastery of necessary vocabulary, chemistry, and other related topics is essential for student success. The Student will be able to: Identify and illustrate the unifying themes of biology Identify the components of the methodology of scientific investigation Diagram the atom and differentiate between its component parts Identify types of chemical bonds and determine what types of bonds can be formed by atoms based on their chemical makeup Discuss the characteristics of water Classify solutions with regard to pH Recognize the major types of organic compounds and functional groups Demonstrate the synthesis and breakdown of polymers and recognize the types of polymers unique to living things Characterize the component parts of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells and relate the function and structure of each Describe cell membranes with regard to chemical makeup, organization, and permeability Classify mechanisms of transport as either passive or active and identify types of each Identify catalyzed reactions as either exergonic or endergonic using numerical data provided or by interpreting a graph representing the reaction List or describe characteristics of enzymes and describe types of enzymatic inhibition Describe feedback inhibition with regard to allosteric enzymes Know the beginning and end products and energy harvest of the catabolic pathways studied and the mechanism of ATP synthesis Know the makeup and function of the photosynthetic light reactions and their products Describe the Calvin cycle with regard to its components, products, regeneration and energy cost CRN: 20064 INSTRUCTOR: Dr. Yuanyuan C.
