BIO 8S: Introduction to Human Physiology

Normal functioning and pathophysiology of major organ systems: nervous, respiratory, cardiovascular, renal, digestive, and endocrine. Additional topics include integrative physiology, clinical case studies, and applications in genomics-based personalized medicine.
Terms: Sum | Units: 4 | UG Reqs: GER: DB-NatSci
Instructors: Goeders, C. (PI)

BIO 19S: Science of Covid-19

This course is designed to help students apply knowledge from an introductory high school biology course to problems related to Covid-19. We will examine how the virus SARS-CoV-2 attacks the human body, how the immune system responds, how testing works, and how this information can be used to design drugs and vaccines to halt the spread of the virus. There has been an explosion of research papers and many claims in the media about the virus. We will evaluate the claims critically and explore the underlying science by reading a few selected papers.
Terms: Sum | Units: 4

BIO 28S: Molecular Genetics and Biotechnology

This course covers the fundamentals of molecular genetics, including principles of how genes work, how gene expression is regulated in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes, and how signals are passed from cells to cells that are far away. We will also explore key advances in biotechnology, including cloning, sequencing, and next-generation sequencing, and discuss case studies involving cancer, Huntington¿s Disease, and more.
Terms: Sum | Units: 3

BIO 32S: Introduction to Biotechnology: Detecting and Treating Disease

This course will examine the basic concepts of biotechnology and the instrumentation and techniques used in the manipulation of nucleic acids (DNA and RNA). Students will learn how biotechnology's tools and techniques are being used to help identify and fight disease, with a special emphasis on tools that help detect viral infections such as COVID-19. This course will also examine the ethical and privacy issues associated with genetic testing.

BIO 35: Sustainability and Civilization (POLISCI 35)

Our civilization faces enormous sustainability challenges, and meeting them will require all of the considerable talent and vision of the rising generation. The unsustainability of the carbon-based energy regime underpinning the global economy has become increasingly apparent, and much of the biological world, as well as our own species, is at risk from human activity. The international political order has proven less stable than many twentieth-century observers expected, and both economic and cultural systems have suffered increasing shocks in recent decades. Science and technology have made enormous advances, but the resulting increases in our power to affect the world carry risks, as well as potential solutions. Some of these properties of modern societies, moreover, have contributed to the rise of the global pandemic, whose widespread effects remind us of the fragility of our knowledge-dependent civilization. This one-unit, online course will bring together faculty from across the entire University to address sustainability broadly conceived. Speakers will survey the range of threats facing us, explore potential solutions, and engage our next generation of future leaders in live discussion about these pressing issues.

BIO 60: Problem solving in infectious disease

Why is Lyme disease spreading? How does HIV become drug resistant? How do other animals affect our disease risk? In BIO 60 students will examine actual case studies to experience how different scientific approaches are used to battle infectious disease. They will evaluate information presented in the popular media and the scientific literature, and will directly participate in the scientific process through hands-on collection, documentation and analyses of authentic scientific data. Students will cultivate their scientific curiosity by discovering the natural world with a Foldscope, the `origami paper microscope¿ ( https://microcosmos.foldscope.com). Students will build critical thinking skills by creating hypotheses, and designing experiments that pertain to problems in infectious disease. Students will work in teams to expand their thinking and will practice communicating science to different audiences.
