Principles of Evolution, Ecology and Behavior

principles of evolution, ecology, and behavior for students beginning their study of biology and of the environment, major ideas and results, mechanisms, and processes
 

Bioscience in the 21st Century

multidisciplinary survey course in which several theme-based topics in bioscience and their social/ethical considerations will be explored, infectious diseases, cancer, genome-based medicine, engineered biomedical systems, stem cells, bioinformatics

Genomic Medicine

key genomic technologies and computational approaches that are driving advances in prognostics, diagnostics, and treatment, issues surrounding the context of genomics in medicine including (what does a physician need to know? what sorts of questions will s/he likely encounter from patients? how should s/he respond?)
