DESCRIPTION

Cell biology, genetics and evolution are fundamental to an understanding of the processes of life. In this unit, we examine the structure and function of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells, including a discussion of the energy flow in photosynthesis, respiration and metabolism. We introduce DNA structure and function from molecular to organism levels, and current applications of DNA technology. We also introduce classical genetic and evolutionary theory as the forces unifying the study of life. Laboratory practicals investigate enzyme function, cytogenetics, algal life cycles and the genetic analysis of populations.
