BIO 223: Stochastic and Nonlinear Dynamics (APPPHYS 223)

Theoretical analysis of dynamical processes: dynamical systems, stochastic processes, and spatiotemporal dynamics. Motivations and applications from biology and physics. Emphasis is on methods including qualitative approaches, asymptotics, and multiple scale analysis. Prerequisites: ordinary and partial differential equations, complex analysis, and probability or statistical physics.
Terms: alternate years, given next year | Units: 3 | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit

BIO 226: Introduction to Biophysics (APPPHYS 205, BIO 126)

Core course appropriate for advanced undergraduate students and graduate students with prior knowledge of calculus and a college physics course. Introduction to how physical principles offer insights into modern biology, with regard to the structural, dynamical, and functional organization of biological systems. Topics include the roles of free energy, diffusion, electromotive forces, non-equilibrium dynamics, and information in fundamental biological processes.
Terms: Win | Units: 3-4 | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit

BIO 227: Foundations of Community Ecology

Discussion of classic papers in community ecology (Forbes, Clements, Gleason, Grinnell, Lindeman, Preston, Elton, Hutchinson, May, MacArthur, Odum, Connell, Paine, Tilman, etc.) and contemporary papers on related topics, to develop historical perspectives to understand current issues and identify future directions. Prerequisite for undergraduates: consent of instructor.
Terms: not given this year | Units: 2 | Grading: Letter (ABCD/NP)

BIO 230: Molecular and Cellular Immunology

Components of the immune system and their functions in immune responses in health and disease: development of the immune system; innate and adaptive immunity; structure and function of antibodies; molecular biology and biochemistry of antigen receptors and signaling pathways; cellular basis of immune responses and their regulation; genetic control of immune responses and disease susceptibility. Lectures and discussion in class and in sections. Satisfies Central Menu Areas 1 or 2. For upper class undergraduates and graduate students who have not previously taken an introductory immunology course. Prerequisite for undergraduates: Biology or Human Biology core, or consent of instructor.
Terms: Aut | Units: 4 | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit

BIO 230A: Molecular and Cellular Immunology Literature Review

Special discussion section for graduate students. Supplement to 230. Corequisite: 230.

BIO 232: Advanced Imaging Lab in Biophysics (APPPHYS 232, BIO 132, BIOPHYS 232, GENE 232)

Laboratory and lectures. Advanced microscopy and imaging, emphasizing hands-on experience with state-of-the-art techniques. Students construct and operate working apparatus. Topics include microscope optics, Koehler illumination, contrast-generating mechanisms (bright/dark field, fluorescence, phase contrast, differential interference contrast), and resolution limits. Laboratory topics vary by year, but include single-molecule fluorescence, fluorescence resonance energy transfer, confocal microscopy, two-photon microscopy, microendoscopy, and optical trapping. Limited enrollment. Recommended: basic physics, Biology core or equivalent, and consent of instructor.
Terms: Spr | Units: 4 | Grading: Medical Option (Med-Ltr-CR/NC)

BIO 234: Conservation Biology: A Latin American Perspective (BIO 144, HUMBIO 112)

Terms: Spr | Units: 3 | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit

BIO 238: Ecosystem Services: The Science of Valuing Nature (BIO 138)

This advanced course explores the science of valuing nature, beginning with its historical origins, and then its recent development in natural (especially ecological), economic, psychological, and other social sciences. We will use the ecosystem services framework (characterizing benefits from ecosystems to people) to define the state of knowledge, core methods of analysis, and research frontiers, such as at the interface with biodiversity, resilience, human health, and human development. Intended for diverse students, with a focus on research and real-world cases. Class size is limited to 12. To apply, please email the instructor (gdaily@stanford.edu) with a brief description of your background and research interests.
Terms: not given this year | Units: 3 | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit

BIO 244: Fundamentals of Molecular Evolution (BIO 113)

The inference of key molecular evolutionary processes from DNA and protein sequences. Topics include random genetic drift, coalescent models, effects and tests of natural selection, combined effects of linkage and natural selection, codon bias and genome evolution. Satisfies Central Menu Areas 1 or 4. Prerequisites: Biology core or graduate standing in any department, and consent of instructor.
Terms: Win | Units: 4 | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit

BIO 245: Ecology and evolution of animal behavior (BIO 145)

Ecological and evolutionary perspectives on animal behavior, with an emphasis on social and collective behavior. This is a project-based course in a lecture/seminar format. Seminars will be based on discussion of journal articles. Independent research projects on the behavior of animals on campus. Prerequisites: Biology or Human Biology core, Biology/ES 30. Recommended: statistics.
