Paced Modern Biology 1-A/1-B is a two-semester alternative to Modern Biology I for those students who do not place into BIO 103. The series is an in-depth exploration of the basic properties of living systems on the molecular, cellular, and organismic levels. Topics in Biology 1-B include gene structure, function, and regulation. In the laboratory students will learn basic laboratory skills and experimental techniques, including measurement, identification of macromolecules, genetic crosses, and forensic DNA analysis.




BIO 101 and; majoring in Cell and Molecular Biology, Forensic Science or Toxicology or minoring in Biology or CHE 100 (for pre-science majors)


The entire 101/102 series must be completed in order to receive credit as a general education science equivalent. This course satisfies the Required Core: Life and Physical Sciences area or the Flexible Core: Scientific World area of the Gen Ed Program.
