Molecular, cellular, tissue, organ, and organ system levels of structure and organization are integrated throughout. The seminar series includes a journal club and research presentation component. Students have the opportunity to present their own independent research. Undergraduate Biological Sciences students should consult the Biological Sciences Student Affairs Office for information on academic requirements for the degree, career opportunities, the BIO SCI Research Program, available tutoring for Biological Sciences courses, Biological Sciences student organizations, and scholarship information. Lecture includes interactive demonstrations and an optional weekend trip.
Seminar utilized to analyze Forum presentations and to prepare senior research paper. Independent research within the laboratories of graduate training faculty in the Department of Developmental and Cell Biology for first-year Ph. Fundamental properties of the nervous system. Content and instructor will vary from year to year. Familiarity with flowering plant families, particularly those prominent in the California flora, is emphasized.

Seminar in Conservation Biology. Functional Imaging of the Nervous System. Two quarters of research four units in winter quarter of the second year and eight units in spring quarter of the second year whereby students will engage in independent research with a faculty member of their choosing in the School of Biological Sciences or Department of Biomedical Engineering requests to perform research in labs outside of Biological Sciences or Biomedical Engineering will be considered on a case by case basis. Topics include the retina and the visual pathway; visual sensitivity; color vision; spatial vision; motion perception; and the development of the visual system. Topics include generation of resting- and action-potentials, voltage- and ligand-gated ion channels, second messenger systems, and synaptic transmission and integration.
Edward Mittelman Memorial Fund Scholarship. Rigor, Reproducibility, and Research Methods. Role of the innate immune system in health and disease. Finally, during their senior year, students continue their research and complete their remaining major requirements.
They also are trained to provide guidance in the application process to both professional and graduate schools, a real advantage to the high proportion of students in the Francisco J. Molecular Mechanisms of Memory. Advanced study in areas not represented by formal courses. Students undertake independent projects requiring data collection, analysis, and modeling, and the organization and presentation of results. The department or program evaluates applications for admission to graduate study based on letters of recommendation, Graduate Record Examination scores, grades, research experience, and other relevant qualifications of the applicant.
Master of Science The Master of Science may be completed by submission of a research thesis plan I or by course work and a comprehensive examination plan II. Limited to Teaching Assistants. Includes supervised field experience in a middle school classroom.

- Limited to Teaching Assistants. The Peer Academic Advisors are upper-division Biological Sciences majors who bring with them valuable academic and social experiences. Stem Cells and Brain Repair.
- Remaining natural habitat, approaches to ecological habitat restoration, control of exotic species, and predicted consequences of global climate change are described. Each student teacher is paired with a highly qualified science teacher who acts as a mentor while the student teacher gradually takes on full responsibility for daily lesson planning, instruction, and assessment. Support is also provided through paid summer and year-round research internships, early research exposure, tutoring, academic advising, scientific writing, and participation at national conferences. Covers State science requirements, a variety of teaching methods, criteria for selecting science curricular materials, and how to plan science lessons, units, experiments, projects, and demonstrations.
Anatomy and Neurobiology School of Medicine: The requirements for a general Biological Sciences B. Thesis Plan The student is required to complete at least four didactic graduate courses 16 units offered by the department, and elective course work with an additional eight units of graduate or upper-division undergraduate course work. The emphasis is on the relationship between atomic structure and the functional properties of these proteins. Trainees are judged as having successfully completed the program provided that they have:
