Fall 2015 Classes

BIOL 281:
Introduction to Research

    Students will meet once a week to discuss the process of biological research. Seminar presentations by local faculty and visiting scientists will expose students to the variety of research currently
    being conducted at Geneseo and elsewhere. Students will explore their own research ideas to develop a project proposal that could potentially be carried out at Geneseo. Class activities willl emphasize the intellectual skills and process required to develop such a project. Intended for sophomores and juniors in the Biology and Biochemistry majors. NOTE: This course may not be used for Biology elective credit. Graded on S/U basis. Restricted to majors. Prerequisites/corequisites: BIOL 203 or BIOL 222. Offered every fall
