End of Course Material, Fall 2012

The final exam for Prof. Singleton’s sections of BIO230 is scheduled for the following times, and will be held in the computer lab in PAC185:

  • MWF  11 AM section:  Monday, Dec 17th, 10:15-12:15 PM
  • MWF 1PM section: Monday, Dec 17th, 12:45-2:45 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
