BIOL 11.06 Why can’t we all just get along? Cooperation and Conflict across the Biological Sciences

Cooperation and conflict are universal themes that arise when considering how entities at various levels of organization interact. This is particularly true in biology, from atoms interacting within a molecule, molecules interacting within a cell, or cells interacting within a multicellular organism, individuals interacting within groups, disease organisms interacting within their host, or nations interacting with one another. We will explore how the concepts of game theory apply at the biochemical, cellular and organismal levels to explore how groups of entities at these various levels interact, and how groups transition to individuals. All along the way we will discuss a lot of biology and see how biologists apply what they know to new problems.
NOTE: Biology 11: For many students, BIOL 11 will be the entrance course to the major. To help students determine if they are sufficiently prepared to enter a foundation course directly, the Biology department has established an online self-assessment exam for students. Students who have any concerns about their preparedness should take BIOL 11 before enrolling in a foundation course. BIOL 11 may be counted toward the biology major if it is taken as the first biology major course. BIOL 11 will not count towards the major if taken after completion of any Biology course numbered above 11. Only one offering of BIOL 11 may be taken for credit.

Distributive and/or World Culture


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.
