BIOL 366: Human Gross Anatomy Lab This course compliments and enhances the human gross anatomy lecture course. Dissection of human cadavers by students is a key component of the course. In addition, learning is facilitated through the use of anatomical models and prosected human cadavers. Concurrent with BIOL 365. Prerequisites: BIOL 122-125. 1 credit, Fall, Spring BIOL 368: Human Physiology This course deals with the normal functioning of the human body and its component parts. The essential concepts of physiology are presented at various levels or organization, from cellular to organ system level with special emphasis on the understanding of homeostasis and integrated regulations of various body processes among several systems. Specifically the course focuses on physiological mechanisms involved in neuronal and chemical signaling, movement, metabolism, respiration, circulation, excretion, etc. Concurrent with BIOL 369. Prerequisites: BIOL 122-125. 3 credits, Fall, Spring BIOL 369: Human Physiology Lab The principles and concepts learned in lecture class are reinforced through hands on experience in this course. The experiments in this course are designed to help the student develop the skills of acquiring and analyzing physiological signals, data interpretation and documentation. Concurrent with BIOL 368. Prerequisites: BIOL 122-125. 1 credit, Fall, Spring BIOL 373: Cellular Biochemistry This course explores the synthesis of nucleotides, DNA, RNA, amino acids and proteins along with fundamental concepts of gene expression and signal transduction. Students discuss DNA-based information technologies and how to apply these technologies to study nucleic acid and protein structure and function. Students are expected to use this knowledge to interpret experimental data and propose scientifically sound explanations consistent with presented data. Concurrent with BIOL 374. Prerequisite: BIOL 122-127, CHEM 366. 3 credits, Spring BIOL 374: Cellular Biochemistry Lab Experiments are used in this course to illustrate the principles and research methods of biochemistry. Concurrent with BIOL 373. Prerequisites: BIOL 122-127, CHEM 366. 1 credit, Spring BIOL 375: Cell Biology Fundamental cellular, subcellular, and molecular characteristics of animal cells are studied in this course. Included are specific studies on cellular organelles, the cytoskeleton, cellular and intracellular membranes, intracellular transport, cell signaling, the cell nucleus, and protein synthesis, and protein structure and function. Also emphasized are current techniques used in cell biology, such as Southern, Northern, and Western Blots, PCR, RNA interference, and immunofluorescent confocal microscopy. Concurrent with BIOL 376. Prerequisites: BIOL 122-127, 4 additional credits biology, 16 credits chemistry. 3 credits, Fall BIOL 376: Cell Biology Lab This course is designed to enhance the lectures presented in BIOL 375. Experiments used in this course illustrate the principles and research techniques of many aspects of animal cell biology. Concurrent with BIOL 375. Prerequisites: BIOL 122-127, 4 additional credits biology, 16 credits chemistry. 1 credit, Fall BIOL 378: Medical Microbiology This course is designed for future health care professionals that need to have a useful and comprehensive introduction to host-parasite relationships, and a thorough understanding of the microbe in its roles as a disease-producing etiological agent.
