BI 1010 - Human Anatomy and Physiology I

2 lecture hours 2 lab hours 3 credits
Course Description
This is the first course of the 4-quarter anatomy and physiology course sequence. Topics include the chemistry of life, cellular form and function, genetics, histology, integumentary system, and bone tissue. (prereq: none)
Course Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
  • Explain how common biological atoms and molecules interact within living systems
  • List the 4 categories of biological macromolecules and provide example functions of each
  • Identify the common components of cells, and list the general functions of each
  • Compare and contrast the types of membrane transport processes (including the passive process of osmosis)
  • Describe the steps involved in gene expression and explain how gene expression can modify the functions of any particular cell
  • Identify the general mechanisms by which cells can generate ATP as an energy source
  • Outline the steps in mitosis and explain the conditions under which mitosis normally occurs
  • List the classes of body tissues and explain the histological features of each tissue
  • List the histological features of the integumentary system and explain how they contribute to the functions of the integumentary system
  • List the histological features of bone tissue and explain how these features contribute to the functions of the skeletal system
