BI 101E - General Biology-Ocean Life Foundations

4 Credit(s)

Basic cellular and organismal processes. Emphasis on how marine organisms demonstrate processes and systems that involve photosynthesis, respiration, cell division, genetics, cell structure and protein synthesis. Includes influences of physical, chemical, and geological oceanography on ocean life. Includes a field trip to the coast.

Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course, the student should be able to:
1. Apply scientific inquiry to biological science concepts 2. Describe the steps involved in scientific inquiry and distinguish between a hypothesis and a theory
3. Develop a vocabulary of appropriate terminology to effectively communicate information concepts in cell biology
4. Read and think critically about scientific data, graphs, and literature
5. Identify and describe underwater geological formations and how those formations relate to the evolution of unique species
6. Describe the chemical and physical properties of seawater and the flow of ocean currents
7. Describe the role of evolution at a cellular and molecular level
8. Diagram a cell and explain the role of the major components of the cell, including how the components work together for cell function and replication
9. Apply concepts of biology and chemistry to understand metabolic pathways
10. Describe patterns of inheritance based on meiosis
11. Identify sources of genetic variation based on mutation, meiotic processes, and sexual reproduction 12. Model the flow of information: the flow from genetic information (DNA) to phenotype (physical traits)
13. Make connections between biology, ocean ecosystems, and your own life
