2 The Biology 1A03 course is designed for students who intend to specialize in Science programs and is required for many higher level courses in the Faculty of Science. Upon completion of Biology 1A03, students will be able to: 1. Effectively discuss the fundamental concepts and underlying processes related to cellular and molecular biology. 2. Implement laboratory technical skills necessary for biological sciences. 3. Work independently and in collaboration with others to compile, analyze, interpret, and present scientific data using oral, written, and internet formats. The primary goal of the course is to prepare students academically for subsequent, specialized Biology courses and to ensure that students acquire skills essential for upper-level biology courses and biology-related fields of study. BIOLOGY 1A03 LECTURES Refer to the McMaster University 2009-10 Fall/Winter Session Undergraduate Timetable. The 1A03 lectures will be a synthesis of several sources (the textbook, primary scientific literature, such as journal articles and current research). Lecture outlines, lists of overheads, study questions, and supplementary resources will be posted on the Biology 1A03 ELM site. The Biology 1A03 ELM lecture outlines are not
