BIOS 200: Foundations in Experimental Biology

This course is divided into two 3-week cycles. During the first cycle, students will be developing a 2-page original research proposal, which may be used for NSF or other fellowship applications. In the second cycle, students will work in small teams and will be mentored by faculty to develop an original research project for oral presentation. Skills emphasized include: 1) reading for breadth and depth; 2) developing compelling, creative arguments; 3) communicating with the spoken and written word; 4) working in teams. Important features of the course include peer assessment, interactive joint classes, and substantial face-to-face discussion with faculty drawn from across the Biosciences programs. Shortened autumn quarter class; class meets during weeks 1 through 8 of the quarter.

BIOS 211: Histology for Biosciences

Fundamentals of tissue organization as seen by light microscopy. Includes: epithelium, connective tissue, muscle, bone, cartilage, blood cells, nerve, and quick overview of several major organs. Each session has interactive 30 minutenpresentation followed by 1.5 hours viewing glass histology slides using individual microscopes and a multi-­headed microscope. Slide sessions interspersed with interactive exercises to stimulate discussions. Supporting materials include select readings from histology atlas, electron micrographs, and virtual (whole-slide) images provided online.

BIOS 223: Introduction to Quantitative Reasoning in Biology

Mini-course. Focus on development of basic skills for quantitative reasoning in biology, including order-of-magnitude estimation and use of the broad spectrum of time scales to enable understanding. Primary examples include going from molecular size and energy scales to functions of single cells and going from mutational and selective processes acting on organisms to evolution of populations on laboratory global scales.
