Course outline:
Basic biological principles and processes at a cellular level provide an essential grounding for future study in the life sciences. Chemistry concepts necessary for understanding biological processes are
introduced, as well as the structure and function of cell components. Cellular respiration and the energetic relationships of photosynthesis, and cellular processes associated with nitrogen assimilation, animal physiology and animal behaviour follow. Sections dealing with genetics and cell division provide an introduction to biological diversity.
