NOTE: Some major requirements will fulfill specific GEF requirements. BIOL 493: Special Topics may also be used to satisfy Biology electives.
Please see the curriculum requirements listed below for details on which GEFs you will need to select. Please see Biology adviser to determine elective group designation. (Intended for non-biology majors.) Population growth and human impacts on the environment, including ecosystem destruction, biological diversity, pollution, and global climate change are explored to obtain the concepts necessary to understand complex environmental issues of our time. It will provide an overview of the structure and function of genes and chromosomes and explore the evolutionary consequences of their behavior in populations.Laboratory experiments will include essential theories and techniques in the field. Staff This writing intensive course is an introduction to the basics of genetics, including molecular, cellular, transmission and population genetics.Laboratory experiments will include essential theories and techniques in the field. Staff The principles of bacteriology, including classification, morphology, chemistry and genetics.Laboratory work involves the detailed study of cultural, morphological, and physiological properties of representative types. Nsiah A study of the gross anatomy of the human body.Students must receive a grade of B or better in each of these courses, except that in MAT 216, BIO 220 and 422/BIO 380 the grade may be a C or better.They must also maintain an overall GPA of 3.0 or better.Students must complete WVU General Education Foundations requirements, College B. requirements, major requirements, and electives with a minimum of 120 hours. in Biology must earn a minimum of 38 hours of coursework in biology or approved courses in the biological sciences, with a minimum of 120 hours total required for graduation. BIOL 490 and BIOL 491 do not satisfy the required fourteen hours of electives in biology. Seniors with a minimum of a 3.00 GPA may take 500-level courses in biology with departmental and college approval. For complete details on these requirements, visit the B. Degrees tab on the Eberly College of Arts and Sciences page. The following information is included for advising purposes only and is not an approved curriculum. The student formulates the project idea with the Eastern faculty mentor.The student is expected to carry out an independent project and write a comprehensive report to the faculty mentor or present the results of the study in seminar form at Eastern. The lectures deal with the theoretical basis for commonly used techniques in protein purification and characterization.
