Academic or Scholarly Dishonesty is prohibited and considered a serious violation of the Student Conduct Code. It is defined as an act of deception in which a Student seeks to claim credit for the work or effort of another person, or uses unauthorized materials or fabricated information in any academic work or research, either through the Student's own efforts or the efforts of another.

BB 100 The Molecules of Life

A brief introduction to molecular biology for nonspecialists. Subjects vary, but have included biochemical basis of the origin of life, biochemical genetics, biochemical aspects of memory and behavior, mutagenesis, bioenergetics and nutrition, and environmental biochemistry.

Fall, Winter, Spring
BB 111 Introduction to Biochemistry & Biophysics Research

Fall
BB 317 Scientific Theory and Practice

Teaches students the practice of biological science. Topics cover scientific theory, communications, and critical evaluation. CROSSLISTED as BI 317. (Writing Intensive Course) PREREQS: (BI 213 or BI 213H) and /or equivalent.

All
BB 331 Introduction to Molecular Biology

Course dealing with the molecular basis of cellular function, with emphasis upon modern developments, and the foundation for practical applications of this knowledge. The course will involve the conceptual background necessary to appreciate the applications of molecular biology. Throughout the course opportunities will be given to discuss public policy issues and questions: What are the moral and practical problems that flow from identification of an individual as being at risk for a late-appearing genetic disorder, such as Huntington's disease or certain cancers? Does the scientific or public value of knowing the entire DNA sequence of the human genome justify a situation in which individual or small-scale research cannot be supported? What issues arise when the fruits of biological research, mostly publicly funded, are commercialized? Should a novel organism be patented? How can biotechnology be applied to environmental problems? (Bacc Core Course) PREREQS: (CH 122 or CH 202 or CH 222 or CH 225H or ( (CH 232 or CH 232H) or (CH 262 or CH 262H or CH 272) )

Fall
BB 332 Molecular Medicine

Provides students an understanding of medical advances from a rapidly evolving molecular point of view. Advances in knowledge of the human genome arising from DNA sequencing efforts and major leaps in understanding of the regulating cellular growth and division are presented in an easy-to-understand fashion appropriate for students in all majors. Course discussions and assignments will cover implications of advances in molecular medicine from ethical, economic, technical and societal standpoints. The aim of the course is to present technical material in a way that non-scientists will understand and conversely to summarize ethical, economic, and philosophical considerations in a way that the scientists understand the implications of these technologies. (Bacc Core Course) PREREQS: Any biology course.
