Description: This course examines paradigms in biochemistry and cell biology with a specific focus on the “central dogma” of molecular biology and is designed for BIOS majors and minors and recommended strongly for students with Advanced Placement in Biology who do not take BIOS 201 and for students wanting additional foundation before transitioning to other 300-level BIOS lecture courses. Using a “flipped” format, lectures are available online, and in-class activities address confusions/questions, examine both historic and contemporary research papers, explore cases and problems, and engage students in short writing assignments. Recommended Prerequisite(s): Recommended strongly for students with Advanced Placement in Biology and designed for prospective Biosciences majors. For students with AP credit for BIOS/BIOC 201, this course is strongly recommended as preparation for BIOS 341 (Cell Biology).
