BIOL 97 Honors Research in Biology I

Original and independent investigation of a biological problem with associated study of primary literature sources under the supervision of a faculty member. Open only to Dartmouth Biology majors. Projects may include research in laboratory settings, field work, modeling, data mining, or development of new methodologies that will further understanding of a relevant basic or applied biological problem. Required of honors students as part of the major. Students taking BIOL 95 and BIOL 97 may count only one of these courses toward the elective courses for their major. In no case may a student elect more than two from courses among BIOL 95, 96, 97, and 98. Students who have completed or are taking BIOL 97 may enroll and receive college credit for BIOL 99 during spring term of their senior year.

Students are awarded one course credit for successful completion of this course at the end of the third term of study. Students subsequently register for BIOL 98 and continue with their coursework into a third term.  Students do not register for a third term. A final grade will replace the “ON” for both BIOL 098 and this course upon completion of this course at the end of the third term of coursework.


At least two Biology courses numbered 20 or above, a 3.0 average in previous Biology courses, and permission of the Undergraduate Committee and the supervising instructor, obtained at least one month prior to the beginning of the term in which the course is to be elected.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
