This class was tough.
It is extremely hard, but without this course your wouldn't understand the molecular basis in biology. How we create energy. How are genes make us into us. Thompson is a wonderful professor, and is currently my advisor. He has helped me so much by getting me back on track in school. His class was hard, but his lectures are done well. I had an 8:30 with him, but he managed to keep us all awake!
You learn about the life cycle of a diploid organism, that goes through stages of mitosis, meiosis and so on. The highlights were the labs, you were doing some serious experiments and really challenged you to think deeply about what tools/chemicals you were using.

Advice for students:
Take it. Well you have to if you are a bio major, but you will learn so much. Be ready to work really hard in this class.
