- BIS 2A: Introductory Biology (Facciotti)
- The BIS 2 series introduces students to the principles on which all life--from the smallest, simplest organisms to the largest communities--is based. BIS 2A concentrates on the cellular basis of life, concentrating on the structures and functions of cells and the biological molecules from which they are formed, the ways by which cells acquire, transform, and use chemical energy, and the mechanisms by which genetic information is stored, safeguarded, transmitted from one generation to the next.
