Course Description: Study of organs, cells, and molecules responsible for the recognition and disposal
of foreign materials that enter the body. Practical considerations and applications. Four hours lecture.
Prerequisite: BIOL 201(with a C- or better); BIOL 319 recommended.
Course Objectives: Upon completion of this course students will be expected to:
•Describe the various cells and organs of the immune system, including the role of each during the
immune response.
•Compare and contrast innate and acquired immunity, including their specific components and effector
mechanisms.
•Describe antigens and antibodies and their interactions.
•Discuss the immune response to specific pathogens.
Academic Policies: It is expected that your work is YOUR work. In the unexpected event of plagiarism
and/or dishonesty during exams or for the research term-paper, the student will receive a zero on that
activity and be referred to the campus administration for disciplinary action. Please refer to the campus
2009-2011 catalog page 82.
Attendance and Participation:
I will not record attendance in lecture however, there will often be material presented in lecture that you will
not find in your text book. Your overall grade in the course will reflect the extent in which you participate
over the course of the quarter.
Grading: Grades will be based on the percentage of points accumulated in the course using the scale shown
below.
A = 94-100
B = 83-86.9
C = 73-76.9
D = 63-66.9
A-= 90-93.9
B- = 80-82.9
C- = 70-72.9
D- = 60-62.9
B+ = 87-89.9
C+ = 77-79.9
D+ = 67-69.9
F = 0-59.9
