3 cr.


(Prerequisites: BIOL 141  - BIOL 142  and BIOL 245 ; Completion or consecutive enrollment in PHYS 120/120L  - PHYS 121/121L  is strongly recommended.)

The course provides an interdisciplinary approach to studying form and function of the vertebrate skeletal system. Topics will include anatomical structure, development and growth, adaptation, and disease, and will incorporate the significant influence that genetic and epigenetic factors (including physical forces) have on vertebrate skeletal structure and function.
