This question collection was developed by Dr. Betty L Black, an award winning Professor of Biology at North Carolina State University. These questions cover basic concepts and principles of molecular, cellular, and developmental biology. The emphasis is on the physical basis of life, the cell as the fundamental unit of life, and the mechanisms involved in the development of multicellular organisms.

Advantage: The question set has been extensively class-tested in large enrollment classes at North Carolina State University, both in face-to-face classes and distance education classes.

Question Collection Features: The questions are multiple choice, ready to be assigned as is or put into question pools, of three each, so each student has a different question set on their assignment from their peers.

Coming soon: There will be questions on ecology, evolution, and biodiversity with emphasis on interactions of organisms with their environments, evolutionary change and role of natural selection in the evolution of life forms, biological diversity in the context of form and function of organisms.
