BIO-102 Biology of Human Disease3
Emphasis on pathogenic organisms and human immune responses. This is a laboratory course designed for students not majoring in biology. Three lectures and one three-hour laboratory weekly.
BIO-102L Biology of Human Disease Laboratory1
This is the laboratory course for BIO-102.
BIO-104 Introduction to Human Anatomy3
A general study of the anatomy of the human body with emphasis on the neuromuscular, skeletal, cardiovascular, and respiratory systems as they relate to activity. This course is not designed for students majoring in biology, exercise science, nursing, health science, or related pre-health professional programs. The course is designed for physical education majors.
BIO-105 Introduction to Physiology of Exercise3
The study of the physiology of the human body systems, including cardiovascular, muscular, nervous, metabolic and respiratory, and the affects of exercise on these systems.
BIO-105L Introduction to Physiology of Exercise Laboratory1
This is the laboratory course for BIO-105. Laboratory experiences will explore scientific inquiry, methods, measurement and statistics related to stress, metabolism and exercise.
BIO-106 Readings in Biology1
Individually assigned readings, followed by written reports or seminars covering classical, current, and semi-popular literature on biological topics.
BIO-108 Human Genetics3
Genetics and genetic technology as applied to humans. Topics include classical (Mendelian) inheritance, genes and gene expression inherited disorders, analysis of pedigrees, sex determination, biological basis of gender, genetics of behavior, gene therapy, and genetic privacy.
BIO-109 Biology of Reproduction3
This course provides an overview of major topics in reproductive biology that include sex differentiation, male and female anatomy, environmental factors that influence reproduction, contraception, and the hormonal control of different stages of reproduction such as puberty (sexual maturation), reproductive cycles, pregnancy and childbirth. The course primarily focuses on human reproduction but other animal groups will be discussed when appropriate. NOTE: When the laboratory (BIO-109L) is offered with this course, it is a required co-requisite course; the combination of the lecture and laboratory will fulfill the laboratory requirement of the Human Biology and Natural Science minors.

This laboratory course may or may not be scheduled along with the BIO-109 lecture. When the laboratory is scheduled with the lecture, it is a required co-requisite course.
BIO-129 Murder, Medicine and Magic3
A study of ethnobotany - the uses people have made of plants. Topics include the uses of plants in various cultures for foods, fibers, shelter, beverages, medicines, rituals, and other ends. Emphasis will be placed on basic botanical principles (such as taxonomy, anatomy, evolution, chemistry), and the human needs (physiological, behavioral, cultural) that plants satisfy. NOTE: When the laboratory (BIO-129L) is offered with this course, it is a required co-requisite; the combination of the lecture and laboratory will fulfill the laboratory requirement of the natural science minor.
BIO-129L Murder, Medicine and Magic Laboratory1
This laboratory course may or may not be scheduled along with the BIO-129 lecture. When the laboratory is scheduled with the lecture, it is a required co-requisite course.
