|15-103 Biology I F, W(3-3) [0.50]|
A lecture and laboratory course which introduces the concepts and controversies in contemporary biology and their implications. Using an integrative approach, the course examines some of the basics of biology and two of the common challenges of life, acquisition and processing of nutrients and information flow. How these challenges are faced by animals, microbes and plants and the diversity of structures and processes that have evolved in response to them will be discussed. This is the first course in a two course biology series. When you select it, you are strongly advised to take the second course, 15-104, immediately thereafter. Material from 15-103 will be referred to in 15-104 to emphasize the integrated nature of biology. Students lacking OAC Biology should consult with their program counsellor prior to taking 15-103.
