BIOL 1010 General Biology I

This course is designed to provide a one-semester introduction to biology for non-majors and the first semester of a two-semester sequence for majors and others who wish to explore biology in greater depth. The course begins with a sequence that includes the cell as a fundamental unit of life, membranes, cell specialization and diversity, and cellular chemistry. The energy pathways and cycles making up the processes of photosynthesis and respiration are examined. A major amount of lecture and laboratory time is devoted to the important areas of genetics and evolution. Students earning credit in BIOL 1010 may not earn credit in BIOL 1020.
