Foundations of Biology - FOUND009 (2024)

The aim of this paper is to deepen students' understanding of key concepts in biology. We begin with cells, genes, and heredity. Then we devote time to study how organisms consume and transform energy to maintain homeostasis. We also study plant and animal systems in relation to whole organism functioning, cell organisation, and genetic diversity. Students' learning will be supported by a range of experiments and demonstrations.
