BIO 1200 Human Biology

This is a course in biological science and research methodology from the perspective of the human body and its systems. The course lays the foundation of knowledge of biology: the chemistry of living organisms, the cell tissues, organs, organ systems and the organism; homeostasis as it applies to human survival; evolutionary processes; genetic, reproductive and other areas of biotechnology; and the human body systems and how they function and malfunction. Biomedical research, the use of humans as research subjects, and other bioethics issues will be addresssed. Research methodology will include the use of scientific method in laboratory exercises, and critical analyises of research studies. Laboratories will include varied exercises in anatomy, physiology, genetics, evolution and an opportunity for students to design their own experiments. Not open to biology majors, biotechnology majors, or students who have taken an Anatomy and Physiology course. Students will be charged an additional Biology Lab Fee when enrolling in this course.
