Biology 1200 is the second half of the majors course in general biology, from cells to organisms. Lectures emphasize the integration of cells and the whole organism, and address biological chemistry, cell structure and function, DNA, RNA, and gene expression, homeostasis, animal and plant nutrition, molecular genetics, immunology, and biotechnology. Laboratory activities examine cells, cellular chemistry, genetics, and DNA, including DNA extraction, analysis, sequencing, and forensic techniques. They develop methods of scientific investigation, statistical analysis, collaboration, and reporting.

Biology 1 and 2 can be taken concurrently or in either order.
