BIOL104 - General Biology I

This is one of two semesters of an introductory level biology sequence designed for students who plan to transfer to an upper level program in science, environmental science, medicine, or a science-related field. Students who are interested in a rigorous study of biology may also enroll. Topics include basic chemistry and biochemistry, cell morphology, physiology and energetics; and classical and molecular genetics. Laboratories are strongly quantitative. Substantial outside preparation for lectures and laboratories is required. BIOL 104 fulfills the SUNY General Education Natural Sciences requirement. Students may not apply credit for both BIOL 101 and BIOL 104 toward their degree. Prerequisites: High School biology and chemistry with minimum Regents exam grades of 80% within the past five years or BIOL 101; prior completion or concurrent enrollment in ENGL 100, MATH 095 or MATH 098, and RDNG 116 if required by placement testing;. 4 Cr. (3 Lec., 3 Lab.) Fall and spring semesters.
