BIO 220 - Principles of Physiology and Development Fall 2016
An integrated study of cells, whole organisms and the interactions between organisms and their environments. The physiological and anatomical solutions to the physical and chemical challenges faced by plants and animals. Mechanisms by which a single cell develops into a complex, multicellular organism in which groups of cells perform specialized tasks. Lecture topics integrated with a laboratory that emphasizes independent research projects. Prerequisite: BIO 110.
BIO/BFB 390 and 490 - Independent Study Fall 2016 and Spring 2017
Independent research directed by Professor Shelley over the course of one semester or two semesters.
BIO 373 - Protein Biochemistry
Biochemistry is the study of life at the molecular level, and proteins are the principal workhorses of the cell. In this course we will examine the synthesis, structure, modification, catalytic mechanisms, and degradation of proteins and their fundamental roles in signaling and metabolism. The laboratory section will include proteins purification techniques, enzymatic assays, and molecular modeling. Prerequisites: BIO 230 and CHM 211.
