SCED 320 - Genetics and Cell Biology Concepts

Integrated exploration of genetics and cell biology concepts including chemical and molecular basis of life, energy transformations, cells in context, genetic patterns of inheritance, molecular genetics, and cell division. Course will be offered on even numbered years. Course will not have an established scheduling pattern.

Prerequisites: (SCED 101 or BIOL 181 or BIOL 101) AND (SCED 103 or CHEM 101 or CHEM 111 or CHEM 181).

Credits: (5)

Learner Outcomes:
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Develop problem solving skills including ability to identify and clarify a problem, gather and evaluate information, consider alternatives, reflect and improve problem solving effectiveness.
  • Persuasively argue the scientific, economic, and ethical ramifications of genetic and cell biology information and their role in modern society.
  • Analyze data for patterns of inheritance, molecular basis of heredity, and biological function at cellular level.
  • Integrate molecular and genetic processes into cellular context and processes including chemical and molecular foundations of life, energy transformations, cell context and signaling, cell cycle, mitosis, and meiosis.
  • Infer how intra/extracellular interactions affect cell structure, function, and genetic behavior.
