Course Description

Biology 1A, 001 - General Biology

Spring 2010

Professors: Gary L. FIRESTONE, Michael MEIGHAN, Jasper D. RINE, Jennifer A DOUDNA
Description: General introduction to cell structure and function, molecular and organism genetics, animal development, form and function. Intended for students majoring in the biological sciences, but open to all qualified students. Students must take both Biology 1A/1AL and 1B to complete the sequence. Neither is a prerequisite to the other. Biology 1A and 1AL are required to be taken together during the same semester for most students. General Biology 1A is a 3 semester units, three 1-hour lectures per week and one 1-hour discussion section per week. General Biology Lab, Biology 1AL is a 2 semester units, one 90-minute lecture per week and one 3-hour lab section per week.
Prerequisite: Chemistry 1A and 3A (or 112A) with a minimum C- grade. Having previously taken or being concurrently enrolled in Chemistry 3B (or 112B) is recommended.
