Biology is an introductory course that focuses on fundamental concepts in biology. The following basic biological themes will be covered; nature of science and biology, ecology, biochemistry, the cell, genetics, microbiology, evolution, and biology’s connection to other disciplines and the world. In addition to conceptual learning, emphasis will be placed on critical analysis of scientific work, project design, collection and interpretation of data. Throughout the year we will analyze issues in bioethics, and our roles and responsibilities as knowledgeable people in the scientific and larger world.
