determination of the binding specificity of proteins, protein fingerprinting, SDS-PAGE and molecular weight

determination, agarose gel electrophoresis, peptide mapping, and Western blotting. 3-hour lecture and 3-hour lab. (Lab

fee: $75.)

Concurrent laboratory registration required. Prerequisite: CH352.

GEOSCIENCE

GS150 Essentials of Geology (3)

A survey of the major topics in geology including minerals, rocks, fossils, erosion, weathering, volcanoes, earthquakes,

landforms, plate tectonics, and earth history. The lab will be a hands-on study of geology focusing on the identification

of rocks, minerals, fossils, landforms, and processes as well as outdoor excursions to study rocks in the field.

GS151 Historical Geology (4)

A survey of the earth’s geological history from its beginning to the present. Topics of study include the fossil record,

correlation methods, and dating methods. Particular attention is paid to comparing and contrasting different viewpoints

on earth history. 3-hour lecture and 3-hour lab. (Lab fee $75.)

PHYSICAL SCIENCE
