Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, P-F, Aud
Prerequisite: BSCI170.
Restriction: Restricted to students in the ILS Honors Program only.
Credit only granted for: HLSC208 or HLSC280.
Formerly: HLSC208.
This course is designed for entering students enrolled in the Honors College Integrated Life Sciences (ILS) program and uses an active learning approach to emphasize inquiry, critical thinking, quantitative reasoning, and hands-on data analysis. This course will cover a variety of bioinformatic related topics, including genome assembly and scaffolding, sequence alignment algorithms, epigenetics, a bioinformatic examination of the central dogma in molecular biology, gene finding, proteomic analysis, the evolution of molecules, cells and organisms, molecular switches, and biological networks.

Teaching Practicum in the Life Sciences
Credits: 1
Grad Meth: Reg
Mathematical Modeling in Biology
Credits: 4
Grad Meth: Reg, P-F, Aud
Prerequisite: MATH131, MATH136, or MATH141.
Cross-listed with: BSCI374.
Credit only granted for: BSCI374, BSCI474, or HLSC374.
Formerly: BSCI474.
Additional information: The HLSC374 version of this course is restricted to students in the Honors College Integrated Life Sciences program.
Students will learn empowering mathematical techniques through the understanding of biological models. Models are chosen from a variety of biological disciplines. Mathematical skills that will be developed along the way include: solving non-linear difference equations, eigenvector analysis, and the implementation of these algorithms as computer models.
