Cellular Processes

Cellular Processes | BIO-1114

This introductory biology course focuses on the cellular processes involved in biological systems, including anatomical, physiological, microbiological, and environmental. Students study concepts applying basic chemistry and biochemistry to the life sciences and allied health fields. Core topics include the characteristics of life, cell structure and function, cellular respiration, reproduction and genetics. Selected laboratory exercises are performed to introduce laboratory safety and provide practical training on topics discussed in class. Students are introduced to the basic processes of cellular biology, including membrane transport, aerobic and anaerobic physiology, enzyme-catalyzed activities, and protein synthesis. Students acquire basic laboratory skills through the investigation of factors that influence cellular activity. An essential foundation is built for subsequent studies in such areas as anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, microbiology, and the allied and environmental health fields.
