BIOL 112 Biomolecular Foundations of Biology

An introduction to the scientific study of key biological principles governing cellular processes of life. Students are introduced to two core concepts for biological literacy: information flow and energy transformation at the molecular and cellular level. Core competencies developed in this course include the process of science as well as communicating across disciplinary boundaries. Topics emphasize incremental complexity of biological systems, relationships between structure and function, and their evolutionary implications. [NS]
