Introductory Biology   (BIO-101)   3.00 s.h.  
*
*
*
*
*
*
Designed for nonscience majors. Presents the essential body of knowledge about biology with an emphasis on molecular biology. Advisories: This course may not be used as the first semester of a two-semester sequence. It does not meet the Biology Area of Study General Biology requirement. For students taking BIO-101-OL, see the Bulletin for information about minimum system requirement. 
Animal Parasitology   (ANS-332)   3.00 s.h.  
*
*
*

*

Course Description
Biology of animal parasites, with emphasis on their structure, life histories, ecology, and importance to people and domestic animals. Laboratory examination of parasitic adaptations, morphological, physiological, behavioral, and ecological, using both preserved materials and materials collected from local animals and maintained in the laboratory.

Learning Outcomes
Through the Portfolio Assessment process, students will demonstrate that they can appropriately address the following outcomes:

  • The biology of animal parasites with emphasis on their structure, life histories, ecology, and importance to people and domestic animals.
  • The laboratory examination of parasitic adaptations, morphology, physiological behavior, and ecology using both preserved and fresh materials.

 
Evolution   (BIO-302)   3.00 s.h.  
*
*

Basic cell biology & physiology; principles of genetics & general cytological laboratory procedures for cytotechnologists. 
Radiation Biology   (NMT-222)   3.00 s.h.  
*
*
*
*

Course Description
The actions of ionizing radiations on living matter. The cell, radiation sickness, gene protection, theory of action, biochemistry, radiometric, chemical, biological effects.

Learning Outcomes
Through the Portfolio Assessment process, students will demonstrate that they can appropriately address the following outcomes:

  • Describe principles of cellular biology and apply to principles of radiation biology.
  • Compare and contrast somatic and genetic effects of radiation.
  • Construct and evaluate charts, graphs and survival curves related to radiation biology principles.
  • Evaluate the relationship of radiation quality and dose to systemic(whole body) responses.
  • Describe radiation induced chemical reactions and analyze biologic damage.

 
Dental Radiology   (ADE-121)   3.00 s.h.  
*
*
*
A lecture and laboratory course presenting the principles of radiology and their clinical application. Lecture topics include x-ray production, processing intra and extra-oral techniques, radiographic interpretation and radiation biology and safety. Laboratory experiences include manikins simulation as well as clinical patients. 
Genetic Improvement of Animals   (ANS-362)   3.00 s.h.  
*
*
*
Translating genetic principles into effective breeding schemes is approached from the farm and industry perspectives in a decision- making framework. Current animal improvement strategies as well as potential systems incorporating new developments in reproductive biology and molecular genetics will be addressed in genetic and economic terms. 
Social Implications of Biology   (BIO-104)   3.00 s.h.  
*
*
*
Consideration of the problems generated by the old and new discoveries in biology for man and society; biological factors of race and races and their social implications; the impact of overpopulation on man, society and environment. 
General Biology I   (BIO-111)   3.00 s.h.  
*
*
*
A study of the fundamental concepts, theoretical principles, and practical aspects of modern biology with emphasis on cells, cellular processes, plants and plant processes. Laboratory exercises stress the development of skill in basic techniques, reinforce particular lecture topics, and introduce material not presented in lecture. Laboratory work includes measuring techniques, the microscope, cell structure and function, and plant anatomy. Available by CLEP exam. 
General Biology II   (BIO-112)   3.00 s.h.  
*
*
*
A continuation of the fundamental concepts, theoretical principles and practical aspects of modern biology with emphasis on animal diversity, genetics and ecology. Laboratory exercises continue to stress the development of skill in basic techniques, reinforce particular lecture topics, and introduce material not presented in lecture. Laboratory work includes human genetics, the isolation of DNA, and animal dissections. Available by CLEP exam.
