BIOLOGY 172 is a one-term course in molecular, cellular, and developmental biology that, together with BIOLOGY 171 and 173, collectively forms the introductory biology course sequence. BIOLOGY 171 and 172 can be taken in either order. It is intended for concentrators in biology, other science programs, or pre-professional studies. Other suitably prepared students wishing detailed coverage of biology are also welcome. The aims of BIOLOGY 172 are:

  1. to provide factual and conceptual knowledge of how cells, organs, and organisms work; and
  2. to develop scientific hypothesis-testing and critical-thinking skills.
