BIO 126 - Evolution and Modern Biology


1 semester, 3 Credits

An explanation of evolution at the non-technical level: DNA, proteins, gene mutation, variation, natural selection, and speciation. Digressions include viruses, cancer, genetic engineering, and topical issues. In the second half, macroevolutionary patterns from the history of life on Earth focus on human ancestry but with attention to diversity and extinction events in other kinds of organisms through time. This course is intended for non-science majors only.
