BIOL 95 Independent 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 for one academic term. Open only to Dartmouth Biology majors and minors. 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. May be taken as one course in the major by students not enrolled in the honors program. Students electing both BIOL 95 and BIOL 97 may count only one among the seven courses in the area of concentration. In no case may a student elect more than two courses among BIOL 95, 96, 97, and 98.


At least three Biology courses numbered 11 or above, a 2.67 average in previous biology courses, and permission of the Undergraduate Committee and the supervising instructor. The application and research proposal must be submitted 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.
