immune responses, and control mechanisms. (not intended for Biology majors)
BLY 214 Lab Studies Microbiology (online)
A series of laboratory experiments designed to provide practical experiments in basic
microbial techniques. (not intended for Biology majors)
BLY 350 Human Physiology
The function and regulation of the organ systems of the body and physiological integration of the systems to maintain homeostasis. Course content will include neural and hormonal homeostatic control mechanisms, and study of the musculoskeletal, circulatory, respiratory, digestive, urinary, immune, reproductive, and endocrine systems.
