BIO 3: Frontiers in Marine Biology

An introduction to contemporary research in marine biology, including ecology, conservation biology, environmental toxicology, behavior, biomechanics, evolution, neurobiology, and molecular biology. Emphasis is on new discoveries and the technologies used to make them. Weekly lectures by faculty from the Hopkins Marine Station.
Terms: Aut | Units: 1
Instructors: Thompson, S. (PI)

BIO 12N: Sensory Ecology of Marine Animals

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 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. 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.

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.

BIO 103: Human and Planetary Health (BIO 203, MED 103, SOC 103, SUSTAIN 103)

Two of the biggest challenges humanity has to face - promoting human health and halting environmental degradation - are strongly linked. The emerging field of Planetary Health recognizes these inter-linkages and promotes creative, interdisciplinary solutions that protect human health and the health of the ecosystems on which we depend. Through a series of lectures and case-study discussions, students will develop an in-depth understanding of the 'Planetary Health' concept, its foundation, goals, priority areas of action, methods of investigation, and the most relevant immediate challenges.

BIO 105: Microbes and Climate (BIO 205, ESS 122, ESS 222)

Microorganisms drive the cycling of carbon, oxygen, and other nutrients in the earth system. This means that microbes both impact and are impacted by changes in climate. In this reading course, participants will read and present a combination of classic and current papers in the primary literature. Topics will include: the co-evolution of microbial metabolism and the climate system over geological timescales; impacts of current climate change on microbial physiology, community ecology, and ecosystem function; multiple stressors; feedbacks of microbial communities to anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions; methods for connecting microbial activities to climate dynamics in process models.

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.

BIO 116: Ecology of the Hawaiian Islands (SUSTAIN 116)

Terrestrial and marine ecology and conservation biology of the Hawaiian Archipelago. Taught in the field in Hawaii as part of quarter-long sequence of courses including Earth Sciences and Anthropology. Topics include ecological succession, plant-soil interactions, conservation biology, biological invasions and ecosystem consequences, and coral reef ecology. Restricted to students accepted into the Wrigley Field Program in Hawaii.

BIO 141: Biostatistics (STATS 141)

Introductory statistical methods for biological data: describing data (numerical and graphical summaries); introduction to probability; and statistical inference (hypothesis tests and confidence intervals). Intermediate statistical methods: comparing groups (analysis of variance); analyzing associations (linear and logistic regression); and methods for categorical data (contingency tables and odds ratio). Course content integrated with statistical computing in R.
