485. Problems
Investigation of a problem in biochemistry and/or molecular biology, including a review of the
literature, collection and interpretation of data, and writing of a research report. May be
repeated once for credit. For seniors and advanced juniors. This is a capstone expreience for
BMB majors. Arrangements must be made with the instructor before registering.

Brian Nowak-Thompson (chair), Craig Tepper

Major: A minimum of 13 courses (12 courses if CHE 161 is taken), including at least 10 courses
in Biology, eight of which must be at or above the 200 level; also CHE 121-122 (or 161), and 225
(Chemical Principles I, II, or Accelerated General Chemistry, and Organic Chemistry I).

The courses in Biology must include the seven core courses listed below and at least one course
from each of the other three groupings:

Appropriate supporting work in chemistry, physics, and mathematics is also strongly
recommended.

Teaching Certification: Students who are interested in pursuing K-12 certification to teach
science should seek admission to the Teacher Education Program. See the Education
department section for application and certification information (pages 109-111).
