Central topics include cell structure and function, energy transduction, the flow of genetic information, cellular reproduction, and intracellular and intercellular communication. Laboratory investigations supplement the lecture material and introduce students to the theory and practice of the scientific method and the application of basic techniques in cell and molecular biology. Reserved for Biology and Biochemistry majors and minors only.
Corequisite(s): BIO1027L
Fulfills: STEM requirement in LS Core.
3 hours lecture, 3 hours lab
Note: Biology and biochemistry majors and minors only

All non-Biology and non-Biochemistry students should take BIO 1025. BIO 1025 will be considered equivalent to BIO 1027 for Biology majors who take BIO 1025 after their first year. BIO 1025 will also be considered equivalent to BIO 1027 for students who are re-taking BIO 1027. Students who take BIO 1025 before declaring a Biology major, will receive credit for the course as equivalent to BIO 1027 toward the major.
