This is actually for the undergraduate version of this class (which enrolls grad students as C226), Phy Sci C126 Biological Clocks. Prof. Colwell is a noted researcher in circadian rhythms and his enthusiasm and wealth of experimental experience made this class very engaging. There is a high volume of material and since this is a very specialized topic there is no neatly organized textbook. The course material is delivered by fairly thorough powerpoint slides and a plentiful supply of research literature. Expect to read a lot articles. One of the more enlightening classes I have had in the life sciences at UCLA. Tests are very well-made/fair and contain a mix of fairly challenging multiple choice questions and short essay answers. I highly recommend the class.

Professor Colwell is a respected researcher at UCLA. He has done some work with Chancellor Block, who will be one of the guest lecturers. The material is very interesting and Colwell makes it very exciting for students. About 45% get A's, which is a pretty fair amount. This class does require some time dedication, but it's definitely a lot easier than Physci core classes. There is one midterm and a final, mostly multiple choices and True/False

Professor Colwell is one of the nicest professors I have ever had. Super understanding and extremely knowledgable, makes you actually want to go to class and watch every lecture. He's genuinely so sweet and understanding and easy to talk to. Also so good at answering questions! lectures and discussion are optional, but highly recommend you go because he gives lots of information about exams during them.
