course intended for science majors. The course has three goals: (1)
to introduce students to the essentials of experimentation with a
focus on investigative logic and methods; (2) to familiarize students
with some of the principles of biology with emphasis on cell biology,
genetics, and evolutionary biology; (3) to integrate different
disciplines (suborganismal and organismal) within biology so that
students see the interrelationships. The hour of discussion, relates
the experiments done in the lab to other aspects of biology.
Required text: TBA.
