BIO* H122 - General Biology II - Organismal Biology


Credits: 4
Utilizing the same integrative approach as BIO* H121, students will investigate biotechnology (gel electrophoresis for DNA and protein analysis), systematics, biological statistics, population genetics, evolution, plant biology (life-cycles and growth of fungi, non-vascular, and vascular plants), animal biology (early development and histology, comparison of invertebrate and vertebrate life cycles and physiological systems), and ecology. Science process skills are emphasized. Collaboratively, students will investigate a scientific research topic culminating in a written report and oral presentation to their peers. This course is one part of a two semester sequence in general biology primarily for students seeking transfer into a four-year degree program. This is the second semester of general biology; however, BIO* H121 (Cellular Biology) and H122 (Organismal Biology) can be taken in any order.

Prerequisite(s): Completion of MAT* H094/MAT* H095 with a C or better or an appropriate score on a college placement exam, and eligibility for ENG* H101.
Lecture Hours: 3
Lab Hours: 3
Note: This course satisfies the general education core science requirement for both non-majors & majors.
