Undergraduate biology mission

UNDERGRADUATE BIOLOGY MISSION

Provide support and coordinate efforts of the Departments of:

  • Biochemistry and Cell Biology

  • Ecology and Evolution

  • Neurobiology and Behavior

    in offering the Biology and Biochemistry majors at Stony Brook University.


Biology program overview

  • As of 4/28/2011 there were 2,111 eligible and registered Majors and Minors in Biology

  • There are 7 different tracks of the Biology Major

  • General Biology

  • Developmental Genetics

  • Neuroscience

  • Ecology & Evolution

  • Environmental Biology

  • BIO Major/BNG Minor

  • BIO/CLS Double Major

    • AND a Biology Minor

  • The most popular of these tracks are:

  • General Biology (70-75%)

  • Developmental Genetics

  • Neuroscience

BIOLOGY PROGRAM - Overview


Location mission overview of the curriculum

Biology (the beginning) at Stony Brook

Required courses in other areas:

(Biology @ SBU builds on a foundation in math and chemistry)

Calculus (2 semesters)

General Chemistry (2 semesters, with lab)

Organic Chemistry (2 semesters, with lab)

Physics (2 semesters, with lab)

Statistics (1 semester)

Introductory Biology Lecture Courses (not a sequence!) :

BIO201: Organisms to ecosystems

BIO202: Molecular & cellular biology

BIO203: Cellular and organ physiology

Introductory Biology Laboratory Courses (a sequence!):

BIO204 & 205: Fundamentals of scientific inquiry in the Biological Sciences

The first couple of years of the Biology Major basically cover the PRE-MED Requirements


Biology major the upper division level

  • Five Upper Division Biology Lectures

  • Two Upper Division Biology Labs

  • It is at the UPPER DIVISION Level the BIOLOGY TRACKS differ

BIOLOGY MAJORThe Upper Division Level


Location mission overview of the curriculum

Advanced Track in Developmental Genetics

  • Prerequisite course from the core curriculum =

  • Fundamentals of Molecular & Cellular Biology (BIO202)

  • Advanced lecture courses =

  • General Genetics(BIO320)

  • Animal Development(BIO325)

  • Either Cell Biology(BIO310), or

    • Cancer Biology (BIO314), or

    • Evolution (BIO354), or

    • MolecularDevelopment of the Nervous System(BIO339)

  • + 2 courses outside of track (can use optional courses listed above)

  • Advanced laboratory courses =

  • Developmental Genetics Laboratory (BIO327)

  • Offered in spring semesters - aim for junior year!

  • + 1 advanced lab outside track,

  • e.g. Techniques in Molecular & Cellular Biology(BIO311)


  • Location mission overview of the curriculum

    Developmental Genetics Track:(Pre-requisitesand the plan of attack)

    • BIO202, a prerequisite for all courses in the Developmental Genetics track, is offered every semester.

    • Animal Development (BIO325), which is offered in the fall, is a prerequisite for the laboratory course in Developmental Genetics.

    • General Genetics (BIO320), which is offered in the spring should be taken either before, or concurrent with the Developmental Genetics laboratory.

    • BIO202 first (& ASAP), BIO325 in the fall, BIO320 and BIO327, the Developmental Genetics Laboratory the following spring!!!!
