I took Infectious Disease with him and it has been my favorite biology class at Duke. Lectures were always interesting and midterm/final assignments were super creative. Never thought I'd have to write a paper about zombie pathogens or eradicating the human race. Definitely recommend this course

Agree with the previous comment, but I think the lectures are boring largely b/c of its dry content. Johnsen tries hard to make it sound very interesting, but often to no avail. Use of textbook highly recommended, since his lectures follows the book EXACTLY even though he does not explicitly say so.

He is a very boring lecturer. Just attend one class, you will know what I mean. Yes, bio 151 was very tough class. Labs are very time consuming and frustrating at times. You will basically have to spend many of your weekends to write the lab report(whole day). Tests are multiple choice but they are extremely ambiguous and hard.

Eh how easy he is depends on which class of his you are taking. Bio 151L, when it was taught by him, was still pretty tough, and it was curved to a B-/C+. However, he is also a very good lecturer so class was pretty interesting.
