BCMB 3100 Resource Page

BCMB 3100 is required by many UGA majors and is a prerequisite of certain professional programs (e.g., medical school).  To address this need, the BCMB department offers multiple sections of BCMB 3100 across all academic terms (Fall, Spring, Summer), an Honors section (Spring; 3100H), and a limited enrollment Online section (Summer; 3100E).  Together, these sections offer ~1500 seats per year.  All courses are offered by PhD-level instructors.  While the instructional content that is delivered is highly similar across all sections, there is variation across sections with respect to class size, content delivery, and assessment methods. The list below is intended to provide you with guidance on what to expect for the different sections. For additional information about a specific BCMB 3100 section, please contact the instructor or the BCMB department.

^Faculty assignments are subject to change according to availability and need.

*Drs. Lee and Robinson each teach 3 sections of BCMB 3100 every Fall and Spring term, and they alternate responsibility for teaching an Honors section of BCMB 3100H that is offered each Spring term.

**Case-based instruction uses problem solving and real-life scenarios to teach biochemical concepts through guidance from instructors (and sometimes peer learning assistants) who ask thought-provoking questions, provide examples, and offer explanations. Lecture instruction follows a traditional classroom teaching model in which the instructor verbally delivers content along with pertinent examples, typically in combination with projected images or video. Combination refers to a delivery format that uses both case-based and lecture instruction. Asynchronous refers to online learning that allows students to view instructional materials and complete assignments each week at any time they choose and does not include a live video lecture component.
