COMP 001 : Life Sciences Lecture-Laboratory
This course explores the basic concepts of the biological (life) sciences. These concepts will be presented through the examination of the principal characteristics that all living things (bacteria, protozoa, fungi, plants, animals) have in common (i.e., ecology, genetics, taxonomy, metabolism, evolution, reproduction and development, etc.). The lecture information surveys living systems on the chemical, cellular and organismal levels. The exploration is complemented by key laboratory applications and observations that will enable the students to recognize, comprehend and appreciate the complexities of biological organization that exist in nature.
