BIOL 1106 - Principles of Biology - 4 credits
Natural Science (03)
Critical Thinking (02)
Biological scientific inquiry and methodology will be taught within a laboratory and lecture context. Cell biology topics will emphasize cell structure, function, and the biochemical processes of respiration, metabolism, and photosynthesis. The study of heredity and genetics will focus on the Mendelian genetics and the molecular basis of inheritance, DNA, RNA, mitosis, and meiosis. Other topics include mechanisms and processes of evolution and current societal issues and breakthroughs in biology. (Prerequisites: READ0900 or appropriate placement score) (MN Transfer Goals 2 and 3) (3 credits lecture/1 credit lab)

Inver Hills Community College

BIOL 1120 - Exploring Biology - 4 credits
Natural Science (03)
Critical Thinking (02)
Introduces non-majors to important biological concepts. This course serves as the prerequisite for Anatomy and Physiology I (BIOL 2201) and Microbiology (BIOL 2205 and 2305). The course emphasizes the molecular level of biology and Darwinian evolution as the unifying theme of biology with emphasis on cell structure and function, cell transport, energy transfers, and genetics. Lab exercises will include the design and conduction of scientific experiments, data analysis, microscopy, cell biology, genetics, and ecology. Students will gain hands-on experience in the safe handling and use of living and preserved organisms as well as laboratory instruments and equipment.

Minneapolis Community and Technical College

BIOL 1100 - Introduction to Biology - 4 credits
Natural Science (03)
This course presents biology as a series of fundamental concepts, all focusing on the theme of the unity and diversity of life. It examines four broad topics: genetics (including Mendelian inheritance, mitosis, meiosis and molecular genetics), evolution (Darwin's theory, evidence of evolution and the history of life, including humans), organismal biology (the classification, diversity, and evolutionary history of prokaryotes and eukaryotes), and ecology (energy flow, nutrient cycling, ecosystems and bio-geography) and conservation biology. The course includes two hours of laboratory instruction per week.
