in Biology. Students taking the graduate level course will prepare a grant proposal in which hypotheses will be based on a select number of lab investigations. In order to move beyond casual observation to in-depth analysis, video cameras will be available to the students, as well as computer based motion analysis systems. It will focus on understanding the basic and fundamental principles as it relates to biological and disease processes of blood. The physical, chemical, and biological limnology of freshwater ecosystems will be investigated. Prereq: Undergraduate Student and BIOL 214 or Requisites Not Met permission. This course will prepare students for upper level Neuroscience courses and is also suitable for students in other programs who desire an understanding of neurosciences. First we will look at the developmental genetic mechanisms that can cause variation and medical pathologies. This course will help incoming Biology MS and Ph.D. students navigate their way through graduate school and participate in the scientific process. Along the way, students will learn some basic tenets of probability and develop competency in R, a commonly used statistical package. Counts as SAGES Departmental Seminar. This discussion-based course offers a detailed introduction to Evolutionary Developmental Biology. 4 Units. and B.S. Appropriate forms must be secured in the biology department office. This course satisfies the Organismal breadth requirement of the B.A. The goal of this course is to supplement the short and basic presentation of Proteins in C3MB by lectures and discussions for students with backgrounds in physical-chemical sciences or students who already have a good basic background in protein science. Counts as SAGES Departmental Seminar. 3 Units. This course will introduce students to classical and current parasitology. A public presentation is required. BIOL 316. Students may bring their own data sets, or may use existing data sets, and will develop an independent research project using these tools. Muscle structure and Function, Myasthenia gravis and Sarcopenia; Central Nervous System, (Synaptic Transmission, Sensory System, Autonomic Nervous System, CNS circuits, Motor System, Neurodegenerative Diseases, Paraplegia and Nerve Compression); Cardiovascular Physiology (Regulation of Pressure and flow; Circulation, Cardiac Cycle, Electrophysiology, Cardiac Function, Control of Cardiovascular function, Hypertension); Hemorragy, Cardiac Hypertrophy and Fibrillation; Respiration Physiology (Gas Transport and Exchange, Control of Breathing, Acid/base regulation, Cor Pulmonaris and Cystic Fibrosis, Sleeping apnea and Emphysema); Renal Physiology (Glomerular Filtration, Tubular Function/transport, Glomerulonephritis, Tubulopaties); Gastro-Intestinal Physiology (Gastric motility, gastric function, pancreas and bile function, digestion and absorption, Liver Physiology; Pancreatitis, Liver Disease and cirrhosis); Endocrine Physiology (Thyroid, Adrenal glands, endocrine pancreas, Parathyroid, calcium sensing receptor, Cushing and diabetes, Reproductive hormones, eclampsia); Integrative Physiology (Response to exercise, fasting and feeding, aging). Students isolate and characterize DNA, construct recombinant DNA molecules, and reintroduce them into eukaryotic cells (yeast, plant, animal) to assess their viability and function. Offered as BIOL 493, CHEM 493, and PHYS 493. BIOL 309. Prereq: Undergraduate Student and (BIOL 216 or (EBME 201 and EBME 202)) or Requisites Not Met Permission. Along the way, students will learn some basic tenets of probability and develop competency in R, a commonly used statistical package. The class will meet as a group twice weekly. This course will introduce students to maximum likelihood methods for fitting models to data and to ways of deciding which model is best supported by the data (model selection). 3 Units. This course explores the impacts of global change on biological systems at levels from individuals to ecosystems; among animals, plants and microbes; across ecological to evolutionary timescales; and from local to global spatial scales. One three hour lab plus one lecture per week. Sometimes we will meet at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, or in the field to collect and observe insects.
