BIO-102 - Principles of Biology 2

3 credits
This course continues Principles of Biology I and examines energy in living systems, genetics and evolution. The first portion examines how living things extract, store and use energy. Genetics explores how the process of reproduction mixes genes and creates the incredible genetic diversity we see around us. The course then concludes with evolution. Students are encouraged to draw their own conclusions as they study the evidence for evolution, the origin of the earth and the evolution of microbial life. In addition, primate evolution is also examined. Laboratory activities, class discussion, and written assignments encourage students to integrate and critically assess these important contemporary scientific concepts. This is a transferable course for non-science majors.
