BIO 3: Frontiers in Ocean Science (OCEANS 3)

An introduction to contemporary research in ocean sciences, including oceanography, ecology, evolution, developmental biology, conservation, animal behavior, physiology, and sociological aspects. Emphasis is on new discoveries and the technologies used to make them. Weekly lectures and panel discussions by faculty from Oceans, Biology, and other departments.
Terms: Aut | Units: 2 | Repeatable 2 times (up to 4 units total)
Instructors: Gilly, W. (PI)

BIO 12N: Sensory Ecology of Marine Animals (OCEANS 12N)

Animals living in the oceans experience a highly varied range of environmental stimuli. An aquatic lifestyle requires an equally rich range of sensory adaptations, including some that are totally foreign to us. In this course we will examine sensory system in marine animals from both an environmental and behavioral perspective and from the point of view of neuroscience and information systems engineering.

BIO 43: Introduction to Laboratory Research in Neuronal Cell Biology

This course provides an authentic research experience where you will study the consequences of disease-related mutations in a neuronal kinesin (KIF1A). You will evaluate scientific arguments; make discoveries by generating, testing, and revising hypotheses; communicate findings to others through oral and poster presentations; and build confidence in yourselves as scientific thinkers. To do so, you will use behavioral, genetic, and cell biological tools to assay how KIF1A mutations affect C. elegans neurons, and connect your findings to clinical severity. Completed or co-requisite in introductory courses in cell and molecular biology ( BIO 82 and 83 or HUMBIO 2A and 3A) and ( CHEM 31A and 31B or CHEM 31M).

BIO 45: Introduction to Laboratory Research in Cell and Molecular Biology

Use modern molecular approaches to characterize a particular tumor-associated mutation in the human p53 tumor suppressor gene via expression and analysis in a yeast model system. Learn about the role of p53 as Guardian of the Genome and consider novel p53-directed tumor therapies through lectures and by reading and discussing journal articles. Use molecular visualization programs to examine the structure of the normal p53 protein and localize the alteration induced by the mutation you are investigating. Assay the ability of mutant p53 to activate expression of multiple reporter genes. Through facilitated discussions with teams of other students studying the same p53 mutant, consider a series of molecular explanations for your p53 mutant's functional defects. Conduct lab experiments to test these hypotheses, analyze data, collaboratively interpret these data, and present your findings through a team oral presentation, as well as a scientific poster. Although there are no pre-requisites to enroll in this class, it will be helpful if you have already taken or are concurrently enrolled in introductory courses in cell and molecular biology ( BIO 82 and 83 or HUMBIO 2A and 3A) and general chemistry ( CHEM 31A and 31B or CHEM 31M).

BIO 81: Introduction to Ecology

This course will introduce you to the first principles of the science of ecology, the study of interactions between organisms and their environment. If you are on the waitlist, we will contact you during the first week of the quarter when we will have more information about your prospects for joining the course. Contact Lydia Villa (lydiav@stanford.edu) for logistical questions. Prerequisites: None.

BIO 83: Biochemistry & Molecular Biology

Introduction to the molecular and biochemical basis of life. Lecture topics include the structure and function of proteins, nucleic acids, lipids and carbohydrates, energy metabolism, signal transduction, epigenetics and DNA repair. The course will also consider how defects in these processes cause disease. Preliminary syllabus will be posted by Sep 1st on Stanford Syllabus. If you are on the waitlist, we will contact you during the first week of the quarter when we will have more information about your prospects for joining the course. Contact Waheeda Khalfan (wkhalfan@stanford.edu) for logistical questions. Prerequisites: None.Please only enroll in the lecture section (section 01) on Axess. Discussion section enrollment will be handled on Canvas. As long as you sign up for the lecture section on Axess, you will receive an e-mail a week before classes begin to guide you on how to sign up for a section on Canvas.

BIO 114A: bioBUDS: Building Up Developing Scientists

BUDS is a student-centered and community-focused program which aims to connect all undergrads - but especially those from FLI and historically excluded backgrounds - to resources, skills, and potential mentors in the biosciences and beyond while fostering a vibrant peer community. We offer weekly grad student-led workshops covering a broad range of biological topics and special topic sessions (workshops, panels, community discussions). The Fall quarter session emphasizes growth as a scientist, seeking opportunities, and getting started in research. All sessions are open to all students regardless of course enrollment, department affiliation, experience-level, or field. For more information, visit our website: https://biobuds.stanford.edu.
Terms: Aut | Units: 2

BIO 124: Topics in Cancer Biology

This discussion-based course will explore the scientific tools used to study the molecular and genetic basis of cancer and to develop treatments for this disease. Topics covered may include cancer models, traditional and targeted cancer therapies, and the development of resistance to treatment. Students will develop skills in critical reading of primary research articles and will also complete a final project. Prerequisites: Human Biology core or BIO 82, 83, 86, or with permission of instructor.
Terms: Aut | Units: 3

BIO 151: Mechanisms of Neuron Death

For undergraduates with backgrounds in neuroscience. Cell and molecular biology of neuron death during neurological disease. Topics: the amyloid diseases (Alzheimer's), prion diseases (kuru and Creutzfeldt-Jakob), oxygen radical diseases (Parkinson's and ALS), triplet repeat diseases (Huntington's), and AIDS-related dementia. Assessment based on in-class participation and short weekly papers. Enrollment is limited to 15; an application is required.

BIO 152: Imaging: Biological Light Microscopy (MCP 222)

This intensive laboratory and discussion course will provide participants with the theoretical and practical knowledge to utilize emerging imaging technologies based on light microscopy. Topics include microscope optics, resolution limits, Köhler illumination, confocal fluorescence, two-photon, TIRF, FRET, photobleaching, super-resolution (SIM, STED, STORM/PALM), tissue clearing/CLARITY/light-sheet microscopy, and live-cell imaging. Applications include using fluorescent probes to analyze subcellular localization and live cell-translocation dynamics. We will be using a flipped classroom for the course in that students will watch iBiology lectures before class, and class time will be used for engaging in extensive discussion. Lab portion involves extensive in-class use of microscopes in the CSIF and NMS core microscopy facilities.
