This course for first-year students focuses on themes of human concern and practical relevance. The theme of the course is cell biology and genetics. It is designed specifically as an alternative to BIOL181 for students who can benefit from additional preparation before enrolling in the relatively demanding core introductory series (BIOL/MB&B 181 and 182 and corresponding laboratories 191 and 192). The course has no required laboratory. The course is especially suitable for prospective majors who intend to enroll in the core series in their sophomore year, as well as for general students seeking a solid introductory course that emphasizes current concepts in cell and molecular biology.
