Biol 355 Genetics - [Mon, Wed, Fri]
Biol 355-01 9:10am - 10am, ROOM TH 327
The prerequisite courses for Biol 355 are completion of Biol 230 & 240 (1st year majors introductory biology) and Chem 130 OR Chem 233 (General Organic Chemistry, or Organic Chemistry I, respectively), each with a grade of C- or better. The prerequisites ARE STRICTLY enforced. (Note that the Chemistry & Biochemistry Department requires a C or better in all prerequisite courses, if you are planning to take Chem 335 Organic Chem II, or Biochemistry, or any other course that requires Organic Chemistry)
If you have not completed the prerequisite courses - DROP THE COURSE - you will not be allowed to remain enrolled in Biol 355. Successful registration (touch-tone) in Biol 355 is not a guarantee of enrollment--successful completion of the prerequisites must be confirmed.
All students who wish to enroll in Biol 355 (whether you are currently registered or wish to add the class) must attend the first day of class (Wednesday, Aug 24, 2016). To expedite enrollment, each student must bring his/her unofficial SFSU transcript or SFSU transfer credit report or transcripts from the non-SFSU campus, demonstrating successful completion of the prerequisite courses (UNLESS YOU HAVE RECEIVED AN E-MAIL FROM THE INSTRUCTOR STATING YOU DO NOT NEED TO PROVIDE DOCUMENTATION). These forms will be turned in to the instructor during the first week of classes. You do not have to bring these documents if you have received an e-mail from the instructor informing you that your prerequisites have been confirmed.
We will also use iclickers daily (iclicker original or iclicker2 will work).
Biol 743 Cell and Molecular Techniques - [Tue, Thu]
Biol 743-01 6:10pm - 7:25pm, ROOM HH501
The course involves lecture and discussion of modern techniques and design of strategies used in cell and molecular biology research. Includes discussion of societal issues.
The prerequisites for this GRADUATE course are graduate status, completion of Biol 357, Chem 340, and Chem 341 (or their equivalent) with a grade of C- or better, and consent of instructor. The prerequisites will be enforced. Biology graduate students will have priority for enrollment. Note that concurrent enrollment in Biol 357 may be allowed with instructor approval. Undergraduates will be allowed to enroll/remain enrolled in the course only after all graduate students have enrolled in the course. Successful registration (touch-tone) in Biol 743 is not a guarantee of enrollment--successful completion of the prerequisites must be confirmed.
All students who wish to enroll in Biol 743 (whether you are currently registered or wish to add the class) must attend the first day of class (Thursday, Aug 25, 2016). To expedite enrollment, each student must bring his/her unofficial SFSU transcript or SFSU transfer credit report or transcripts from the non-SFSU campus, demonstrating successful completion of the prerequisite courses. These forms will be turned in to the instructor on the first day of class.
