Principles of Biology: The Principles of Biology sequence (BI 211, 212 and 213) introduces biology as a scientific discipline for students planning to major in biology and other science disciplines. Laboratories and classroom activities introduce techniques used to study biological processes and provide opportunities for students to develop their ability to conduct research.
- BI211 focuses on how structure defines function in organisms and the pathways and transformation of energy in living systems.
- BI212 uses genetics as a model system to understand information flow in living organisms.
- BI213 focuses on the interactions of living systems and the ecology and evolution of biodiversity.
