Introduction to Modern Biology | 现代生物学导论

欢迎同学们参加《现代生物学导论》的学习。在本学期中,我们将学习和生命相关的基础和前沿知识。本课程首先按照层层递进的框架结构,解释生物学的基本理论:在分子和细胞水平上,我们将会学习细胞的结构、生长、分裂和细胞通讯;在个体水平上,学习遗传和发育原理;在种群水平上,将了解生物演化,即整个种群在世代间的渐变,通过自然选择最终导致了今天我们所见到的多种生物;在生物群落和生态系统的水平上,将学习生态学,研究生物体之间以及生物与环境之间如何相互作用。本课程还将具体探讨演化的产物---生物体,着重讨论其结构与功能,这是大部分学生最感兴趣也是最为重要的部分。 生物学是一门快速发展的学科,不仅仅体现在越来越多的生物学现象被发现和理解,也体现在新的生物学技术应用和学科交叉上。所以,本门课程特别注重了解包括基因治疗、干细胞研究、重组DNA、生物芯片等现代生物学前沿方面的最新进展。而且,将会讨论生物学和物理、化学、数学、计算机、心理学等学科的交叉应用。生物学同时也是一门实验科学,我们将会介绍一些经典的、有趣的、甚至是有争议的生物学实验及其设计,希望同学们在学习的同时培养批判性的思维。本门课程的课堂教学追求通俗易懂,宏观与微观紧密联系,基础与应用相结合,帮助同学们加深对生命科学基本概念和原理的理解,引导学生树立正确的科学态度。 This introductory course includes the fundamental principles of biochemistry, genetics, molecular biology, and cell biology. Biological function at the molecular level is particularly emphasized and covers the structure and regulation of genes, as well as, the structure and synthesis of proteins, how these molecules are integrated into cells, and how these cells are integrated into multicellular systems and organisms. In addition, each version of the subject has its own distinctive material. All these knowledge are applied to more advanced subjects, like immunology, neurobiology, endocrinology and human behavior. This course also focuses on the exploration of current research in cell biology, immunology, neurobiology, genomics, and molecular medicine.
