Bio 1002
general biology

undergraduate lecture and lab course
lecture and lab: 4.5 credits
Semester: Spring 2013


Systems, ecological and evolutionary biology. Integration of plant and animal form and function with biological concepts and theories of evolution, development, homeostasis and ecology-biodiversity.

Bio 59
biotechnology of algae

undergraduate lecture course
2 hour lecture: 2 credits
Semester: TBA


Areas covered in this course include phylogeny, evolution, habitats, growth cycles, and genetic engineering of algae. In addition, biosynthetic pathways of algal products and their metabolic regulation will be incorporated. Also, interdisciplinary topics such as designing bio-reactors and nutritional sciences including values of natural products from algae will be covered. The economic aspect of the course would include patent law as well as management of culture collections, and companies dealing with algae. It is anticipated to have guest speakers from companies to talk within the course objective about their specialty. The course will consist of two hours lectures.

BIOL U793.03
genomics and beyond

2 hour lecture; 1 hour discussion section and annotation practice: 3 credits
Semester: TBA


The course introduces students to the field of systems biology. A focus of the course is the area of genomics in the background of metabolism. Students learn about reading and writing genomes and will learn about sequencing entities such as the US DOE Joint Genome Institute. Using the example of algal genomes, students then have to apply their learned knowledge to mine data within the genomes.
