MB 541. Microbial Genetics. 3 Credits. (3 Lec) Su alternate years, to be offered odd years.

Prokaryotes provide much of the understanding of fundamental genetics for all organisms, especially through in vivo and in vitro genetic tools. Transcription, translation, mutation and recombination are considered, so that science teachers understand of fundamentals of genetics. This course is intended for practicing teachers and those in the MSSE program.

MB 547. Thermal Biology of YNP. 2 Credits. (1 Lec, 1 Lab) Su

Thermal Biology, an interdisciplinary science that incorporates biology, geology, and chemistry to discover where and under what conditions life can exist in the thermal features of Yellowstone National Park. As such, it lends itself easily to incorporation to most science curricula. The two goals of this are to: 1)provide a basic understanding of the ecology of a variety of life forms and their thermal habitats, and 2) provide a survey of observational techniques and hands-on activities appropriate for science educators.
