Courses: Cell Structure and Function (BIOLH200B02)
Three hours of lecture and one laboratory period per week. A one-year course in cellular and molecular biology. Biology 200 considers the cell as a unit of biological activity. There is an introduction to the major macromolecules of the cell which includes a discussion of their synthesis and breakdown and a section on the gene as a unit of biological information and the flow and transmission of genetic information. The laboratory introduces the student to cell and molecular biology, biochemistry and genetics. Enrollment per lab section is limited to 28. Preference for a specific lab section will be given to students preregistering for that lab section; students who do not preregister will be assigned on a space available basis. Prerequisite: The prerequisite for Biology 200a is successful completion, with a grade of 2.0 or higher, of a one credit Natural Science course (which includes a laboratory experience) at Haverford, Bryn Mawr or Swarthmore. The prerequisite for Biology 200b is successful completion of Biology 200a with a grade of 2.0 or higher, or consent
Prerequisites: Successful completion of one Natural Science credit, which includes a lab experience at Haverford, Bryn Mawr, or Swarthmore.
