ANSC 320 - Reproductive Physiology and Lactation
3 credit hour(s)

Reproductive anatomy and physiology and lactation in agriculturally-important and companion animals, humans, and to a lesser extent avian and zoo animal species. This is a core course for animal science majors and an elective for biochemistry, cellular and molecular biology majors. Course materials may also be of interest to students majoring in other majors in agriculture, biological and life sciences. (Same as BCMB 320.)

Contact Hour Distribution: 2 hours and 1 lab.
(RE) Prerequisite(s) : Grade of C– or better in ANSC 220, BCMB 230, or BCMB 440; or consent of instructor.
Recommended Background: Introductory animal or human physiology course.
Registration Restriction(s): Minimum student level – junior.

ANSC 328 - Honors: Reproductive Physiology and Lactation
3 credit hour(s)

Biology of sex and sexual differentiation, functional anatomy of male and female, reproduction and lactation, gametogenesis, neuroendocrinology and endocrinology of reproduction and lactation, sex cycles, folliculogenesis, ovulation, spermatogenesis, fertilization, embryonic development, implantation, pregnancy, parturition, initiation of lactation and maintenance of the dry period, artificial control of reproduction and lactation.

Contact Hour Distribution: 2 hours and 1 lab.
(RE) Prerequisite(s) : Grade of C– or better in ANSC 220, BCMB 230, or BCMB 440; or consent of instructor.
Comment(s): Enriched version of ANSC 320.
