BI 130 Anatomy and Physiology I (Fall: 3)
Does not satisfy the Natural Sciences Core requirement. This course is restricted
to School of Nursing students. Other students may be admitted only during
the course drop/add period on a seat-available basis.
This course lays the foundation for the understanding of human anatomy and
physiology. The first portion of the course covers cellular and molecular
aspects of eukaryotic cell function: basic chemistry, macromolecules, cell
structure, membrane transport, metabolism, gene expression, cell cycle control,
and genetics. The course continues with the study of several organ systems.
Beginning with the Integument, which is followed by the Skeletal and Muscular
Systems, and ending this first semester with the Nervous System. The cellular
and molecular basis for the functions of these systems is an integral element
of this portion of the course.
