This course is an introduction to that theory with special emphasis on evolution. A BIO Molecular Biology 3 Mechanisms of gene expression and regulation will be studied, using examples from bacteria and eukaryotes. These techniques are used to investigate cell motility, membrane structure and permeability, mitochondrial respiration, DNA replication, the cell cycle, and cell adhesion.
Home College of Arts and Sciences Courses in Biological Sciences Courses in Biological Sciences A BIO General Biological Sciences 3 Introduction to the major concepts in biology and a survey of the common structures of organisms, including humans, and their functions at the molecular, cellular, organismal and population levels.
A BIO Parasitic Diseases and Human Welfare 3 Ecological, medical, and social interrelationships of selected parasitic diseases of people and domestic animals in temperate, semi-tropical, and tropical climates; role of wild animals as reservoirs or vectors of parasitic diseases in humans.
One laboratory per week, plus additional flexible time as required. The potential of modern genetic techniques to provide diagnosis and treatment of diseases will major difference between sex determination in drosophila and humans in Албани be discussed. These electrical signals are recorded from the nervous systems of cockroaches, crayfish and fruit flies; the signals are examined using data acquisition and analysis software.
Feature extraction will be considered as the basis of visual localization and prey insect capture in toads and in echo localization and insect capture in bats.
Prerequisite or corequisite s : A BIO Prerequisite s : junior or senior standing, or permission of instructor. Lectures couple fundamental and applied topics, balancing understanding of ecological principles with realistic environmental problem solving. Various evolutionary hypotheses are examined.
The information gathered has also driven the development of new technologies designed to explore and exploit the information gathered. It is expected that Minors will take this course in the Fall of their senior year. Laboratory safety and quality assurance will also be included in the course.
This laboratory includes dissection of preserved specimens, microscopic investigations and examination of skeletal samples and anatomical models. Topics may include classical Mendelian genetics, molecular genetics and genomics, and modern applications of these techniques.
Particular areas of study to be announced each semester.
