Introduction to biology's core concepts from molecules through cells including information, evolution, cells, emergent properties, and homeostasis. The weekly laboratory emphasizes core competencies of the process of science, the interdisciplinary nature of modern biology, data interpretation, quantitative skills, communication in multiple formats, and experience with large databases. Students may take BIO 113 with either BIO 112 or BIO 114 to complete biology introductory course requirements.

Satisfies the Natural Science requirement.

Students with credit for BIO 111 may not enroll in BIO 113.

Fall 2020-
All required materials, class meetings, and lab meetings will be remote and asynchronous so that all students have equal access and opportunity. During the scheduled times, we will have large or small group meetings to discuss lab and class materials. In addition, office hours and multiple small group question and answer sessions will be scattered throughout the week to accommodate everyone's time zones. I will be available from about 8 am eastern time US to about 5:30 pm eastern time US. We will use Zoom and email a lot. For anyone on campus, we can set up some face-to-face meetings as well, but these are NOT required.
