2 Course Description BIOL 1362 is the second semester of a two-part Introduction to Biological Science course that is required of biology and biochemistry majors. It is a prerequisite for all advanced courses in biology and is often taken as an elective by students majoring in other natural and social sciences. Enrollment in this course requires either credit for, or concurrent enrollment in MATH 1310 or its equivalent. The goal of this course is to introduce students to basic concepts of biology and prepare them for upper level biology and biochemistry course work. BIOL 1361 (first semester) focuses on biochemistry, cell biology, and physiology, while BIOL 1362 (second semester) focuses on genetics, biotechnology, evolution, and ecology. Laboratory
