CRN: 20895

Ecology and Evolution
Ecology and Evolution
In this introduction to ecology and evolutionary biology we will cover the topics of interspecific interactions (competition, predation, mutualism), demography and life-history patterns, succession and disturbance in natural communities, species diversity, stability and complexity, causes of evolutionary change, speciation, phylogenetic reconstruction, and population genetics. The laboratory component will examine lecture topics in detail (such as measuring the evolutionary response of bacteria, adaptations of stream invertebrates to life in moving water, invasive species and their patterns of spread). We will emphasize experimental design, data collection in the field and in the laboratory, data analysis, and writing skills. This course is not open to seniors and second semester juniors in the Fall. 3 hrs. lect./disc./3 hrs. lab

Bioinformatics and Genomics
Bioinformatics and genomics are quickly evolving fields that analyze and contextualize genome sequencing data. Genomics is the study, with an emphasis on high-throughput techniques, of the nucleic acid content of organisms. Bioinformatics is the interdisciplinary field that uses the techniques of statistics, computer science, and system organization to interpret this genomic data. In this course students will use national repositories of genomic information, databases, and open-source bioinformatics tools to visualize and manipulate genomic data. We will also explore genomics’ larger social context, particularly as it relates to medical informatics. (CHEM 0104 or CHEM 0107 and BIOL 0145 or by waiver) 3 hrs. lect.

Neurobiology
Neurobiology
Neuroscience is one of the most rapidly progressing sciences, and recent scientific and clinical studies change how we view the human brain. We will examine the nervous system from the most basic biological levels: genes, molecular signaling, cells, and neural networks. Through primary and secondary literature we will focus primarily upon simple nervous systems and simple circuits. Students will choose selected topics and give in-depth presentations and lead discussions. By this approach we will learn about the methods of the most current research, and how our brain controls our body and behavior (BIOL 0370 or NSCI 0251). 3 hrs. sem.
