Class Description:
Biol 1009, General Biology, is a course for non-CBS majors seeking a broad survey of biology in a single semester. The course covers the major concepts and principles of contemporary biology and also provides the foundation needed to pursue further studies in the biological sciences. Topics include: structure and function of biological molecules, cell structure and function, energy recruitment and utilization, cellular reproduction, flow of genetic information through organisms and populations, principles of inheritance, evolution and ecology. If you are in pre-health sciences or another science major outside of CBS, you may need Biol 1009 to fulfill expectations of professional or graduate schools in your future.
