BIO 4900: Residency: Biology Lab


(Optional Three-Day, Face-to-Face Residency Elective Prerequisite: BIO 1030 Principles of Biology) Biology Lab Camp is a residency course designed to accompany Principles of Biology (BIO 1030). Students will travel to Waldorf College in Forest City, IA, and spend three days in our laboratories, and on short field trips, testing central ideas and biological principles covered in BIO 1030. Topics include cell structure, cellular metabolism, genetics and basic biotechnology, the diversity of life, processes of ecology and evolution, and the nervous system and sensory perception, all within the context of the nature of science. Together with Principles of Biology, these courses also are designed to be transferable to most residential college programs and satisfy their general education laboratory science requirement.
