This subject introduces some of the basic processes exhibited by living organisms. It assumes no prior knowledge of biology and provides a self-contained introduction to biology as well as a foundation for later studies in areas related to the life sciences. The subject examines the characteristics of living organisms and the structure of cells; energy flow, nutrition and metabolism; information storage and gene expression; and reproduction and inheritance. Emphasis is placed on the relevance of these processes to human affairs.
On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Apply knowledge of basic concepts in the areas of cellular function, metabolism, genetics and evolution to interpret biological phenomena;
2. Collect, record, analyse and interpret biological data related to these concepts and communicate these interpretations both in writing and orally; and
3. Design and conduct experiments which examine some of these concepts.
