biology

Topics covered - (provisional)

This course aims to develop knowledge and understanding of molecular biology through the key biomolecules involved in building and maintaining cells. It explores some applications of biology from the biochemistry that determines an individual, through how this is expressed and looks at the ways in which biochemistry of DNA and protein synthesis is applied in industry and research. It will enable you to recognise the value of molecular biology in personal life and in society at large and promote its responsible use.
