Credits: 4
The general principles of biology are taught integrating lectures, laboratory experiments, computer simulations, discussions, and other activities to help students gain an understanding of the essential biological concepts. The foci of this course are scientific method, cell biology, viruses, prokaryotic organisms, protists, basic cell chemistry, photosynthesis, cellular respiration, mitosis & meiosis, genetics, and biotechnology (plant tissue culture, genetic transformation). Cooperative learning, critical thinking, library research, as well as presentation skills are utilized culminating in a team project that includes a written paper and a short presentation. This course is one part of a two semester sequence in general biology primarily for students seeking transfer into a four-year degree program.
