BIO 110: The Chromatin-Regulated Genome (BIO 210)

Maintenance of the genome is a prerequisite for life. In eukaryotes, all DNA-templated processes are tightly connected to chromatin structure and function. This course will explore epigenetic and chromatin regulation of cellular processes related to aging, cancer, stem cell pluripotency, metabolic homeostasis, and development. Course material integrates current literature with a foundational review of histone modifications and nucleosome composition in epigenetic inheritance, transcription, replication, cell division and DNA damage responses. Prerequisite: BIO 41 or BIO 83 or consent of instructor.
Terms: Spr | Units: 3 | UG Reqs: GER: DB-NatSci, WAY-SMA

BIO 111: Microbiology

Introduction to microbiology, with emphasis on bacteria. Topics include the cell structure of microorganisms, gene regulation, bacterial genetics, bacterial evolution and diversity, bacterial development, interaction and communication, bacterial chemotaxis and motility, microbiomes, infectious diseases, bacterial pathogenesis, host defense systems, and viruses. Strongly recommended: molecular biology, biochemistry, genetics or cell biology courses (e.g. BIO 82, 83 or 86).
Terms: Win | Units: 3

BIO 112: Human Physiology (HUMBIO 133)

Human physiology will be examined by organ systems: cardiovascular, respiratory, renal, gastrointestinal and endocrine. Molecular and cell biology and signaling principles that underlie organ development, pathophysiology and opportunities for regenerative medicine are discussed, as well as integrative control mechanisms and fetal development. Prerequisite: Human Biology core or Biology Foundations or equivalent or consent of instructor.
Terms: Win | Units: 4 | UG Reqs: GER: DB-NatSci, WAY-SMA
Instructors: Kao, P. (PI)

BIO 113: Fundamentals of Molecular Evolution (BIO 244)

The inference of key molecular evolutionary processes from DNA and protein sequences. Topics include random genetic drift, coalescent models, effects and tests of natural selection, combined effects of linkage and natural selection, codon bias and genome evolution. Prerequisites: Biology core or BIO 82, 85 or graduate standing in any department, and consent of instructor.
Terms: Win | Units: 4 | UG Reqs: GER: DB-NatSci

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 journal clubs 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 journal clubs and workshops are open to all students regardless of course enrollment, department affiliation, experience-level, or field. https://biobuds.sites.stanford.edu/.

BIO 114B: bioBUDS: Research Program

This course serves as a companion and continuation for the Fall and Spring sessions of bioBUDS ( BIO 114). If demand exceeds slots available, preference will be given to students who participated in the Fall session. This program will pair participating students with a lab/research mentor based on student-ranked preferences. Students will work on a research project with their mentor for the duration of the quarter. Participating students in this research internship will additionally receive a stipend as well as support in the bioBUDS community. Tuesday journal club sessions will continue weekly through the quarter with limited continuation of Thursday sessions which will focus on tracking internship progress and evaluating mentorship relationships. https://biobuds.sites.stanford.edu/. An application link will be posted at a later date.

BIO 114C: bioBUDS: Building Up Developing Scientists

BUDS is a student-centered and community-focused program which aims to connect all bio-interested 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 journal clubs covering a broad range of biological topics and special topic sessions (workshops, panels, community discussions). Spring quarter will focus on topics relating to the intersections of biological research and interdisciplinary subjects. All journal clubs and workshops are open to all students regardless of course enrollment, department affiliation, experience-level, or field. https://biobuds.sites.stanford.edu/.

BIO 115: The Hidden Kingdom - Evolution, Ecology and Diversity of Fungi (BIO 239)

Fungi are critical, yet often hidden, components of the biosphere. They regulate decomposition, are primary partners in plant symbiosis and strongly impact agriculture and economics. Students will explore the fascinating world of fungal biology, ecology and evolution via lecture, lab, field exercises and Saturday field trips that will provide traditional and molecular experiences in the collection, analysis and industrial use of diverse fungi. Students will chose an environmental niche, collect and identify resident fungi, and hypothesize about their community relationship. Prerequisite: BIO 81, 85 recommended.
Terms: Win | Units: 4 | UG Reqs: WAY-SMA
Instructors: Peay, K. (PI)

BIO 117: Biology and Global Change (EARTHSYS 111, EARTHSYS 217, ESS 111)

The biological causes and consequences of anthropogenic and natural changes in the atmosphere, oceans, and terrestrial and freshwater ecosystems. Topics: glacial cycles and marine circulation, greenhouse gases and climate change, tropical deforestation and species extinctions, and human population growth and resource use. Prerequisite: Biology or Human Biology core or BIO 81 or graduate standing.
Terms: Win | Units: 4 | UG Reqs: WAY-SMA, GER: DB-NatSci

BIO 120: Integrative Microbiology (BIO 220)

To live, organisms have to successfully coordinate a conglomerate of different molecular processes in line with available resources and what environmental conditions demand. This course introduces exiting recent advances in understanding this coordination and the link between molecular processes, physiology, and ecology in microbial organisms. Python based "dry lab sessions" complement lectures to promote the interactive exploration of real datasets and introduce the power of quantitative analysis & modeling techniques for obtaining a more integrative understanding of (microbial) life. Prerequisite: MATH 51 or MATH 19, 20,21. Recommended: microbiology (e.g. BIO 62 or 162) and molecular biology/biochemistry/genetics courses (e.g. BIO 82 or 83).
