BIOMG 1350

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2019-2020.

The course introduces molecular mechanisms that underlie the organization, division, and growth of individual cells; how they organize during embryonic development to form functional tissues and organs in multicellular organisms; and how their misbehavior contributes to disease. Students seeking additional help with the material taught in BioMG 1350 should consider the active learning supplemental class BIOMG 1035 (see course catalog for details). The learning outcomes below indicate the topics and skills that students should master upon completion of the course.

When Offered Fall, Spring, Summer.

Distribution Category (BIO-AG, PBS-AS)

Comments Biological sciences majors must take course for a letter grade. Students may not receive credit for BIOG 1140 after taking BIOMG 1350.

Outcomes
  • The internal organization of the cell, cellular organelles and their main functions.
  • The four major classes of macromolecules in cells.
