Primary Instructor:

BIOLOGY 173 is a one-term project-based laboratory course that with BIOLOGY 171 and 172 forms the introductory biology sequence.

The aims of BIOLOGY 173 are:

  • to provide an integrated introduction to experimental biology;
  • to foster hypothesis-testing and analytical approaches to experimental data; and
  • to develop critical-thinking and writing skills.

Topics in BIOLOGY 173 are divided among four primary areas:

  • Biochemistry
  • Molecular genetics
  • Evolution
  • Ecology

Textbook: Biology 173 Laboratory Manual, Marc Ammerlaan, 2008

Intended Audience:

It is intended for majors in biology, other science programs, or pre-professional studies. Other suitably prepared students wishing detailed coverage of biology are welcome.
