Course Details

BIOL 5515. Selected Topics in Cell and Molecular Biology ({0-3}-{0-6}-3) Prerequisites: BIOL 3215 and BIOL 3216, both with a grade of "C" or better or permission of instructor. An opportunity to study in depth one of many specialized fields in cellular and molecular biology. The specific topic will vary by semester and instructor. Topics include, but are not limited to histology, developmental biology, advanced cell biology, cytological toxicology, and histotechniques. Course may be repeated for credit when topic differs. Laboratory experiences, when included will introduce the student to basic cytological study techniques for that specific field. Lecture and lab hours vary with topic, and laboratory work may extend beyond scheduled hours. (Course fee required.)

BIOL 5525. Selected Topics in Organismic Biology ({0-3}-{0-6}-3) Prerequisite: BIOL 3218 with a grade of "C" or better or permission of instructor. An opportunity to study one of the fields encompassed by organismic biology. The specific topic will vary by semester and instructor. Topics will be related to knowledge and investigation of the structure, function, and adaptations of groups of living organisms. Topics include, but are not limited to: morphology, physiology, physiology or taxonomy of various groups of organisms. Lecture and lab hours vary with topic, and laboratory work may extend beyond scheduled hours. Course may be repeated for credit when topic differs. (Course fee required.)

BIOL 5535. Selected Topics in Ecological and Evolutionary Biology ({0-3}-{0-6}-3) Prerequisites: BIOL 3217 and BIOL 3218, both with a grade of "C" or better. An opportunity to study one of the fields encompassed by ecological or evolutionary biology. The specific topic will vary by semester and instructor. Topics will be related to knowledge and investigation of the distribution, abundance and adaptations of living organisms as mediated by the environment and natural selection. Topics include but are not limited to aquatic ecology, biogeography, organic evolution, applied ecology, and toxicology. Lecture and lab hours vary with topic, and laboratory work may extend beyond scheduled hours. Course may be taken twice for credit by undergraduate students. Course may be repeated for credit when topic differs. (Course fee required.)
