BIO 395 - Special Topics Course - Dev Bio on the Fly: Exploring Patterning and Morphogenesis with Drosophila
BIO395 is a Course-based Undergraduate Research Experience (CURE) that is designed to reinforce genetics, developmental biology, and cell biology concepts through guided inquiry and experimentation using the Drosophila melanogaster model system. Students will learn the basics of fly husbandry, genetic crosses, immunostaining, and data analysis to uncover phenotypes associated with genetic mutants uncovered by the national FlyCURE consortium. Students will be expected to present results and contribute to a poster presentation and/or a research manuscript.
BIO 370 - Developmental Biology
BIO370 provides students with an in-depth understanding of the cellular mechanisms and processes involved in the growth and development of model organisms and humans. This course will cover embryonic development, stem cell regulation, organ development, developmental gene regulation, the interrelationship of developmental mechanisms perturbed in human diseases, and experimental paradigms used to study developmental processes.
BIO 210 - Molecular and Cell Biology and Animal Physiology
BIO210 is the first semester of the two-semester core biology series for biology majors at CSUMB. Topics covered at introductory levels include macromolecule structure and function, cell structure and function, biochemistry including cellular respiration and photosynthesis, cell signaling and reproduction, transmission and molecular genetics, control of gene expression, biotechnology, comparative animal form and function, and development of animal structures and organ systems.
BIO 210L - Molecular and Cell Biology and Animal Physiology Lab
The goals for this laboratory course are to develop a sound understanding and practice of laboratory safety and laboratory science, to expose students to the major techniques used in molecular biology laboratories, and to gain hands-on experience exploring the form and function of major animal organ systems. This course may have a lab fee.
