BIOL 78 Molecular Mysteries of Human Biology

Knowledge of molecular mechanisms allows new approaches to understanding human biology and disease. This course will explore the normal and abnormal biology of several human conditions relying on biochemistry, molecular genetics, and physiology as tools of inquiry. Examples will be drawn from the histories of Mona Lisa, Michel-Eugène Chevreul, Otto Warburg, Hendrickje Stöffels, Bobby Sands, Paul Cézanne, Pearl Buck, Auguste D and Luigi Cornaro among others.




BIOL 13 and BIOL 40 (or CHEM 41) or permission of instructor. A prior course on some aspect of mammalian physiology is recommended (e.g. BIOL 2, BIOL 35 or BIOL 37). Priority will be given to senior Biology majors.

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.
