This course involves both lecture and lab components. This course has a laboratory component that requires the purchasing of a lab kit. Information on purchasing the lab kit—and accompanying course materials—can be found by accessing the following link: Students will not be allowed to stay in the course without purchasing a lab kit unless a different arrangement has been made with the instructor.

This course may count as an area D lab science, but it is generally not considered for Science and Engineering majors. Nor is it for students advancing to pre-professional programs in medicine, dentistry, and pharmacy. This is a non-majors biology course. Only students attending Georgia institutions of higher learning will be allowed to register for this course.
