|Human Biology B 108|
BIO 108 is designed to be a general biology course for non-biology majors. It provides the students with the basic principles that help them understand normal human physiology. It helps them to develop basic knowledge and understanding of the major concepts of the biological sciences. It focuses on the mechanisms of body function from cells to systems and is organized around the central theme of homeostasis--how the body meets changing demands while maintaining the internal constancy necessary for all cells and organs to function. It covers general topics in biology, chemistry, cells, cell division, genetics, and protein synthesis. Several body systems including the Integumentary, circulatory, muscular, nervous, skeletal, respiratory and digestive systems are also covered. The objective is to raise students’ science literacy, thus enabling them to understand scientific issues needed for making personal and public policy decisions.
