Undergraduates who previously have taken an introductory biochemistry course act as TAs for Introductory Biochemistry (Biology 311). TAs meet with the instructor for a two-hour class each week for lectures, presentations, and discussions of teaching and biochemistry. TAs also prepare a report on a recent advance in biochemistry which they present to their peers and the instructor. The major roles of the TAs are to examine the students on their mastery of unit material and to help the students with explanations supplementary to the textbook. At the completion of an instructor-generated written quiz, the student and TA grade the quiz together. TAs learn considerable biochemistry by repeated teachings of unit materials and, in addition, profit from their experience as teachers and evaluators.

This course will introduce students to generic-level organization of 25 neo-tropical plant families. Families covered will include those that are (1) ecologically widespread and abundant in the neo-tropics (e.g., Fabaceae, Sapindaceae, Bignoniaceae) or (2) of particular taxonomic or economic significance (Lecythidaceae, Annonaceae). Each meeting will include a lecture and slides on the comparative morphology, anatomy, and significance of each family covered, and a laboratory session during which students will be able to examine specimens of each family and to take self-examinations on their ability to apply the characteristics. The course will include, when possible, a week-long field trip to Fairchild Tropical Garden in Miami, Florida, where students will be able to put to good use the training they have gained throughout the course. Guest lecturers will be invited to participate on topics of special interest. The course is intended for advanced undergraduate students and graduate students, both botanists and zoologists (including ecologically oriented students in both disciplines) who have a strong interest in tropical biology. It is expected that students from SNRE as well as LS&A will enroll in the course. There will be two one-hour lectures per week and two one and one-half hour laboratory sessions per week.

Every week a self-exam will be available on which students practice their identification skills. Every two weeks, an exam will be administered that will take less than 30 minutes and will serve as a baseline evaluation of the progress that students are making. A term paper will be required of all participants in which they focus on a large genus or small family of neotropical plants for the purposes of clarifying the phylogenetic relationships, economic or ethnobotanical uses, ecological importance, or biogeography of that small group. Oral presentations of the term papers will take place during the final week of the course.

Organizational Meeting, 5 P.M. In 2044 Nat. Sci. On Wednesday, September 5. This Course Will Meet September 14 October 28, Fri. Evenings Beginning At 7 Pm And Concluding Sun. Evenings At 7 Pm.

Ecology students require intensive practice in making field observations and systematically exploring the implications of those observations. One vehicle for doing so is the "field problem" based course, in which a faculty member chooses a general topic and works with a small group of students exploring that topic for an entire day. The field problem-based course is distinct from the laboratory course in that field problems seek to explore an unknown area. The course does not include "set labs" or repeats of well-known patterns. The professor and students seek to explore a specific research question that has not been examined before. The exercise of working through the details of a new problem along with the professor gives the student practice in the creative part of the scientific endeavor. Working with a variety of faculty members the student experiences several "styles" of doing science. The general structure of the course, centered around the field problem, encourages a great deal of discussion among students and between students and faculty. A major goal of the course is to facilitate that discussion. In addition, there is a relatively large lecture load, with an average of four lectures per week.

The Patterson Lake Nature Center is in southeastern Livingston County, approximately 25 miles northwest of Ann Arbor. The Center adjoins the E.S. George Reserve, a University of Michigan research facility. Together the two offer nearly 2,000 acres of protected wildlands, containing a great variety of terrestrial and aquatic habitats all available for research and teaching.

BIOLOGY 480. Computer-Aided Inferences in Evolution and Ecology.

Section 001.

Instructor(s): George F Estabrook (gfred@umich.edu)

Prerequisites: Senior natural science concentrator or graduate student. (4).

Credits: (4).

Course Homepage: No homepage submitted.

BIO 480 teaches METHODS for formulating hypotheses and for generating predictions from them so that they may be tested with data. These methods will enable you, as a natural scientist, to participate responsibly in the design of your experiments, and in the making of inferences from the data they provide, free of the burden of unwanted mathematical assumptions. In BIO 480, you will learn about basic probability concepts, and how to use them to formulate testable hypotheses to explain natural phenomena. You will learn how to use the PASCAL language to describe your hypotheses so that predictions can be calculated using a personal computer. These predictions take the form of probability distributions. Computationally intense methods such as these avoid the need for inappropriate assumptions and mysterious mathematical techniques, and enable you to understand every step of your own argument.

The course presents 3 hours of explanatory lectures and 2 hours of computer workshops and discussions per week. During the first part of the course, students prepare small weekly projects to present and discuss with each other and the professor. During the second part of the course, each student formulates an hypothesis based on his or her own research project, and simulates predictions.

This course will focus on central metabolism especially the catabolism of glucose, lactose, and amino acids. Among the topics considered will be: (1) "The memory paradox" where bacterial cells remember how they were grown 40 generations ago in the absence of external reminder; (2) the integration of pathways and how changes in one effect the flow of another; and (3) global regulators (known and unknown) that integrate complex signals and transmit them into gene expression responses. Biochemistry shows that pathways exist, physiology asks the questions of how they function and why they are important. The key theme of the course will be regulation rather than memorizing pathways.

Bacterial Physiology II is entirely independent of the related Bacterial Physiology I and III courses and can be taken without either of the others.

This course will focus on the interconversion of various kinds of nitrogen sources. Topics will include the reduction of nitrate and atmospheric nitrogen to ammonia and the catabolism of urea and amino acids. Emphasis will be on the regulation of these pathways and the regulatory features that allow cells to use only the "appropriate" nitrogen sources to supply their needs. For example, how does a cell know to use the urea before porline as a nitrogen source (and ammonia before urea)? The key theme of the course will be regulation and the logical methods used to figure out how regulation functions.

Bacterial Physiology III is entirely independent of the related Bacterial Physiology I and II courses and can be taken without either of the others. The course is intended for graduate students and upper class undergraduates with an interest in microbiology or biochemical regulation.
