End of Course Material, Fall 2011

The final exam for BIO230 is scheduled for the following times:

  • MWF  11 AM section:  Monday, Dec 19th, 10:15-12:15 PM
  • MWF 1PM section: Monday, Dec 19th, 12:45-2:45 PM
  • MW 5 PM section: Friday, Dec 17th, 5:00-7:00 PM

New material following the 3rd exam will include:

  • Gram positive bacteria: Chapter 19
  • Gram negative bacteria: Chapter 20
  • Viruses: Chapter 13
  • Specific viruses: Chapters 24 and 25
  • Additionally, the chapter on Introduction to Genetics (Chapter 7) will be VERY helpful to understand viruses

The above schedule is ambitious, and I do not expect that we will get through it all. We will cover the material on viruses by the last lecture.

The final exam for this course is cumulative. A significant portion of the final (approximately 40%) will draw on the final series of lectures dealing with our discussion of the above listing of pathogenic microorganisms. However, there are a number of topics that I consider of critical importance for which we will be responsible from the first 3 exams. Material that you should be familiar with will include:

  • Chapter 3 Cell Structure; pp 56-66,72-76,80-85
  • Chapter 4 Microscopy; pp 97-105,108-112
  • Chapter 6 Nutrition; pp 166-172, 176-179, 185-189
  • Chapter 9 Control; pp 258-261, 263-270, 277
  • Chapter 10 Antibiotics; pp 285-299 (understand the mechanisms of drug killing, not specific examples of antibiotics)
  • Chapter 14 Infection; pp 402-416, 418-420, 423
  • Chapter 15, Innate Immunity; pp 436-440, 444-448,451-453
  • Chapter 16, Adaptive Immunity, pp 460, 463-464, 466-471, 482-485
  • Chapter 17, Immunization, pp 491-497
  • Chapter 18, Immune Disorders, pp 512-522

  1. This seemed like a kind of drab post so I thought I would spice it up with a little joke.

    A bacteria walks into a bar. The bartender goes, “I’m sorry but we can’t serve you here.” The bacteria then says, “its okay, I work here. I’m staph.”

  2. Did you like Hypnotoad?

  3. A heterotrophic adsorptive-feeding eukaryote walks into a bar, because it is open mike night. The bartender goes, “What makes you think that you’ll be any good at this?” The heterotrophic adsorptive-feeding eukaryote says “Because I’m a fungi.”
