Courses currently taught by Martin Hudson
BIOL 3300L - Genetics Laboratory
- 3 Laboratory Hours, 1 Credit Hour
- Prerequisite: Grade of "C" or better in BIOL 1108 and CHEM 1211/1211L
- Co-requisite: BIOL 3300 Genetics Lecture
This course is designed to reinforce principles and applications of transmission genetics, cytogenetics, and molecular genetics. Students will learn to use problem-solving, data analysis and quantitative methods to explore these areas of genetics. Exercises in molecular genetics will expose students to methods of recombinant DNA technology.
BIOL 3410 - Cell Biology
- 3 Class Hours, 0 Laboratory Hours, 3 Credit Hours
- Prerequisite: Grade of “C” or better in BIOL 1108, BIOL 1108L, BIOL 3300 and BIOL 3300L
Cellular function and genetic principles from an experimental point of view. Emphasis will be placed on the functional interactions among cellular substructures, regulation of cellular biosynthetic activity, regulation of sub-cellular transport, and evaluation of experimental data.
BIOL 4490-2 - Neuroscience
- 3 Class Hours, 3 Laboratory Hours, 4 Credit Hours
- Prerequisite: Grade of “C” or better grade in BIOL 3410, BIOL 4350 or 4431 or permission of the instructor.
This course will investigate the development, structure and function of the nervous system, including gross anatomy, neurophysiology and molecular models of behavior. Part I: development, molecular and cellular biology of neurons. Part II: simple circuits and simple behaviors. Part III: neuroanatomy of vertebrates. Part IV: neurophysiology. Emphasis will be placed on the evaluation of experimental data and experimental design.
