BIO 283: Theoretical Population Genetics (BIO 183)

Models in population genetics and evolution. Selection, random drift, gene linkage, migration, and inbreeding, and their influence on the evolution of gene frequencies and chromosome structure. Models are related to DNA sequence evolution. Prerequisites: calculus and linear algebra, or consent of instructor.
Terms: alternate years, given next year | Units: 3 | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit

BIO 286: Natural History of the Vertebrates (BIO 186)

Broad survey of the diversity of vertebrate life. Discussion of the major branches of the vertebrate evolutionary tree, with emphasis on evolutionary relationships and key adaptations as revealed by the fossil record and modern phylogenetics. Modern orders introduced through an emphasis on natural history, physiology, behavioral ecology, community ecology, and conservation. Lab sessions focused on comparative skeletal morphology through hands-on work with skeletal specimens. Discussion of field methods and experience with our local vertebrate communities through field trips to several of California¿s distinct biomes. Prerequisite: Biology core.
Terms: not given this year | Units: 4 | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit

BIO 287: Advanced topics in human population genetics

Focused examination of specific topics in human population genetics, with emphasis on primary literature. Course themes may include: mathematical properties of statistics used in human population genetics, population genetics and ¿biological race,¿ and statistical inference of human migrations.

BIO 289: Biochemistry II (BIO 189, CHEM 183, CHEMENG 183, CHEMENG 283)

Focus on metabolic biochemistry: the study of chemical reactions that provide the cell with the energy and raw materials necessary for life. Topics include glycolysis, gluconeogenesis, the citric acid cycle, oxidative phosphorylation, photosynthesis, the pentose phosphate pathway, and the metabolism of glycogen, fatty acids, amino acids, and nucleotides as well as the macromolecular machines that synthesize RNA, DNA, and proteins. Medical relevance is emphasized throughout. Satisfies Central Menu Area 1 for Bio majors. Prerequisite: BIO 188/288 or CHEM 181 or CHEMENG 181/281 (formerly 188/288).
