(Below is a list of biological terms. I used it as an extra point assignment for the class I was teaching in 2000, when many non-biology majors wanted to take a bioinformatics course. I happened to find it today while I was looking around the old directories on my hard disk. I just put it on this board without too much hope that someone out there may make some use of it.)
This assignment is for non-biology majors only. You don't need to write long answers at all. Just write down very brief descriptions for each. This assignment is not to give you a heavy load of work, but to give you a chance to read through a book for the basic background necessary for the course.
