Core Biology

We are no longer admitting high school students to the 2018 Summer Session. Visiting undergraduate students are welcome to apply.

What is life? How does it work and evolve? This course uses student-centered interactive learning in the lab, assigned readings from both the popular press and primary scientific literature, and directed writing exercises to explore the nature and functions of living organisms, their interactions with each other, and their environment. In other words, we will explore how to understand the complexities of biological phenomena at the molecular, cellular, organismal, and community level through scientific inquiry.
