The UC Davis BIS2A Team Biology Content and Attributions

  • Page ID
  • [ "article:topic" ]

    Content authored by the BIS2A Team at UC Davis, from which much of the BIS2A reading material is drawn, is either heavily edited material originally drawn from the OpenStax "Biology" textbook or original material created by members of the BIS2A Team. The content was written to align closely with the lecture materials delivered in the first freshman/sophomore level course in biology offered at UC Davis and therefore focuses largely on life at the cellular level. Student feedback is used to continuously improve the quality of the materials.

    The BIS2A Team at UC Davis

    The current set of modules assembled for BIS2A have been prepared, curated, and/or edited by the following group of contributors (listed in no particular order):

    • Erin Easlon, PhD - University of California, Davis
    • Marc T. Facciotti, PhD - University of California, Davis
    • Mitchell Singer, PhD - University of California, Davis
    • Michele Igo, PhD - University of California, Davis
    • Christopher Pagliarulo, PhD - University of California, Davis
    • Erin Becker, PhD - University of California, Davis
    • Maryna Imas - University of California, Davis
    • We would like to recognize the contributions of former BIS2A students who have provided valuable feedback on the reading assignments.
