BIOAP 1100 - Domestic Animal Biology


(BIOLS-AG, OPHLS-AG, PBS-AS)      
Fall. 4 credits. Letter grades only.

J. Giles, V. Selvaraj.

This course introduces functional anatomy and physiology of livestock, companion animals and poultry. Building from biomolecules and cellular function to the entire organism, the content aims to integrate understanding of structure-function relationships offering comparisons between mammals and birds. Knowledge of systems physiology through this course will be relevant for pursuing basic and applied fields in animal science, biology and veterinary medicine.

Outcome 1: Be able to appreciate the functional complexities of animal biology.

Outcome 2: Have comprehension of comparative anatomy of livestock and poultry.

Outcome 3: Have functional understanding of the major animal physiological systems.

Outcome 4: Be capable of integrating related topics from separate parts of the course and establish a coherent foundational knowledge network.

Outcome 5: Acquire potential for building on material learned as they advance through biology training.

Outcome 6: Be aware of the breadth of studies in biology and visualize career interests in animal biology.
